With the development of the Pennsylvania Core Standards, including the Keystone Anchors, the Dunmore School District has revised, updated, and aligned our English Language Arts curriculum guides in grades K-12. Advanced Placement standards have also been aligned in the 11th grade Literature and Composition and the 12th grade Language and Composition curricula as well. The results ensure that our curriculum guides meet the educational needs of all of our students throughout their academic progression from elementary to secondary years and beyond.

The content of these courses, as described in our curriculum guides, is aligned to both the National and

State Committee recommendations. These guides are designed to allow teachers the opportunity to plan and implement lessons corresponding with the academic needs of their students. ELA department members used their professional judgment and experience in creating these documents to be useful to all teachers in their respective academic levels.

The timelines and assessment suggestions are just that, suggestions. These columns will be revisited and revised as the year progresses. The timelines may be modified to take into account unforeseen schedule changes. The assessment suggestions may also be subject to adjustment with the use of online assessments in connection with text book computer-generated programs.

These guides are designed to benefit both experienced and new teachers. As advancements in education evolve, these curriculum guides will be continually monitored and updated as necessary.
