    Belief Statements

    We believe every innovative and culturally responsive literacy classroom requires:

    • every student engages in rigorous, meaningful literacy experiences focused on reading, writing, communicating, and thinking.
    • every teacher designs learning experiences that are responsive to the needs and assets of each student.
    • classroom systems, structures, rituals, and routines that allow students to think flexibly, communicate their understanding effectively, and apply literacy skills in all areas of life.
