Hello teacher friends! s I am one of the many teachers who is teaching the new and exciting Benchmark Advance ELA program. While I am very impressed with this rich, rigorous, and well-balanced literacy curriculum, I do feel that it presents some implementation challenges that need to be worked out in order for our students to truly benefit from all that it has to offer. In a sincere effort to make this program really work for me, I have found it helpful to make a few additions and modifications.
I hope there is something here to help you as you work to implement this new and challenging curriculum. Cheers! And good luck to us all!
