GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Scholars engage in high-quality literacy instruction while incorporating metacognitive strategies and critical thinking to develop and deepen comprehension, using a variety of increasingly complex and diverse text.  The literacy learning experiences includes listening, speaking, reading, writing, and thinking.

INSTRUCTIONAL FRAMEWORK

AISD believes that a balanced approach to literacy development is essential to building the foundational blocks of knowledge for strategic reading, writing, and analytical thinking. We believe that purposeful integration of interactive and engaging reading and writing skills in all disciplines provide opportunities for students to enjoy reading, engage in complex text, explore new learning, deepen thinking, ask, and answer questions, and more importantly, develop lifelong learning.

ACTIVE STUDENT LEARNING

Scholars should participate in authentic literacy activities where they work collaboratively to listen and respond through conversations about their reading and writing. Purposeful and intentional integration of interactive and engaging reading and writing tasks allow students to have a deeper understanding of vocabulary, fluency and comprehension strategies as well as the writing process, spelling, grammar, and punctuation to communicate their ideas effectively.
