The Reading Network written by Melanie G. Maminta-Donkor published by SIBS Publishing House, Inc. is used for classroom reading. As students read these stories which are divided into four units, we hope to develop additional vocabulary that can heightened their interest as students make text to self and text to experience connections. The stories also give students real-life fiction and non-fiction writing examples which can aid in their own writing and hoping that they can link it in their on-going journey.

Reading helps students develop language skills and prepares them for recognizing the written word. With this standard we hope to involve the student's use of strategies, student-generated test questions, and critical thinking to construct meaning and develop an understanding and importance of the English language.

Our English Program aims to develop students that are able to effectively communicate in a bilingual society. To achieve this purpose the program will present English Language Learning with varied, dynamic and interactive activities that are organized in four language strands (oral communication, written communication, reading comprehension and literary appreciation). These strands involve expectations and similar skills that develop and expand over time.

Reading should be a big part of a student's life. It is not enough to be limited to schoolbooks. Students must be surrounded with a variety of reading materials but not limited to magazines, newspaper, and comic books. There is a good collection of books at the school library. Ask the teacher librarian about choices that are age and interest appropriate.

Evaluation Method: (subject to change at the teacher's discretion)

• Rubrics prior to the given activity may vary, Formative and Summative Quizzes/Tests, Assignments, Projects, Researches

Thematic: (subject to change according to classroom's needs and progress, per Unit)
