SCHOOLWIDE Reading Fundamentals
Reading Fundamentals has a central mission to develop, expand, and enhance the skills,
strategies, and tools students can use to make meaning of and interact with text. Reading Fundamentals
Units of Study exist inside a balanced literacy framework. Within this framework, there are opportunities
to read to students (Authentic Mentor texts), to read with students (Shared Texts), and to have students read independently
(books and other texts at their independent reading levels).
