At Alsup, we use the curriculum Benchmark Advanced and Benchmark Adelante for our reading instruction. We also use the "Workshop Model" where students are working in cooperative groups and having meaningful conversations about the text.
Benchmark Advance and Benchmark Adelante ©2018 are brand-new, comprehensive English and Spanish Reading/Language Arts programs from Benchmark Education Company for Kindergarten through sixth grade. These programs are built to address key shifts in curriculum and instruction to meet the demands of the new standards.
