    Guiding Principles of ELA Instruction


    The Birdville ISD English Language Arts curriculum reflects the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and has been developed around the following guiding principles:


    Language Arts instruction is strongest when it:

    • uses a balanced literacy approach
    • integrates reading, writing, speaking, listening, and research
    • emphasizes the processes of reading and writing
    • provides students rich, relevant, and authentic reading and writing experiences
    • embeds skills instruction in purposeful and meaningful learning
    • respects both students and teachers as readers and writers
    • acknowledges the text demands of an ever-changing world through the study of a variety of genres and modes, both classical and contemporary
    • uses assessment to design instruction to meet individual student needs
    • engage students in collaborative discussions about reading and writing
