The Pen Made Mightier: K12 Inc. Premiers New Tools for English/Language Arts
Through K12’s ELA curriculum, younger children learn the basics of phonics and grammar and prepare for reading through systematic, multi-sensory activities. Meanwhile, older students develop their literary analysis and comprehension skills by reading novels, nonfiction, and contemporary works. A close reading approach also guides students toward a deeper level of understanding the meaning of selected texts.
This fall, an expanded version of K12’s Embark curriculum will provide elementary school students with engaging interactive online lessons using hands-on learning materials, activities, and high-quality children’s literature. Also, through a partnership with Newsela, students in grades 6-10 will have access to hundreds of informational texts at five different reading levels. This program uses an adaptive algorithm to quickly determine and adjust students’ reading levels and match them with appropriate reading resources.
“We are excited to introduce families and our partner schools to K12’s updated ELA program as we continue to personalize the learning process for each student,” said
K12 has more than 20 years of experience delivering online and in-person instruction. The company leverages its expertise in integrated platforms and technology, which are time-tested and built specifically for online learning, to deliver a personalized learning experience to students across the country.
Combining phonics, language skills, spelling lessons, and opportunities for fluency practice, K12’s ELA program emphasizes classic works, teaches writing as a process, and prepares students for standardized tests in the areas of language skills and reading comprehension.
