Benchmark Advance is a brand-new, comprehensive English Reading/Language Arts program. The program is built to address key shifts in curriculum and instruction to meet the demands of the new standards.
Rigorous, integrated reading, writing, speaking, and listening instruction meets the needs of districts implementing a reading collaborative, balanced approach, or workshop model, and enables all students to master rigorous learning goals with strong resources for differentiated instruction and responsive teaching based upon ongoing assessments.
While the program itself is incredibly rigorous, as I implemented the product within my students, I noticed that it lacked some supplemental resources. Within this product you will find ALL of the student objectives (created in poster format) and a supplemental resource addressing the following areas: Unit Introduction, Build and Reflect, Short Read 1, Short Read 2, Extended Read 1, Extended Read 2, Writing to Sources, Word Study. Additionally, posters have been created to address the unit's domain-specific and academic vocabulary for each week, as well as the spelling words. Everything has been clearly labeled for easy and immediate implementation. Print as needed (e.g., whole-class instruction, small group instruction/Daily 5) or print all and create your own students' practice books! Do note that the only thing not included is assessment, as I feel that the program has created sufficient assessment opportunities to apply within the students.
