• English Language Arts Philosophy


    The Marysville School District believes that literacy, the ability to read, write, listen, speak, and think critically in different ways and for different purposes, begins to develop early and becomes increasingly important as students pursue specialized fields of study in high school and beyond. 

    The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for reading, writing, speaking, listening and language provide the learning targets for our instruction. Additional information on the CCSS is available at the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).

    The Marysville School District is aligning our literacy curriculum to meet or exceed CCSS. Our reading program consists of clearly articulated goals, quality assessments, appropriate, evidence-based instructional strategies, and quality materials for students with the end goal of helping students achieve college and career readiness.
