Our school implements the Teacher's College Reading and Writing Project to support our language curriculum. It is a literacy program from Columbia University that supports the students' development in reading and writing. The program uses the workshop model; this model teaches the students important reading and writing strategies and then gives an opportunity for the students to use them independently with one to one support. We are happy to see that the Reading and Writing Project has set students up to be confident and enthusiastic readers, writers, and inquirers.
