(2)  Throughout the year, recorded trainings are released that you can use at your own pace and review as often as needed. 

Stepping Stones curricular framework will:

  • Provide lesson-by-lesson structure using a guided release of responsibility model and incorporating daily reading mini-workshop and daily modeled writing aligned to real-world communicative purposes (and also to World Language standards and literacy skills with wider application across the curriculum).
  • It provides a unit-by-unit structure using six major cycles of instruction each year - Description, Narration, Going Deeper with Narration, Information, Opinion, and Argumentation.  Within each cycle, four phases are aligned to deepen communicative purpose.

       For example, within Information, the four phases are:

        (1)  Organizing Informational Writing on Topic One
        (2)  Incorporating Content-Specific Vocabulary on Topic One
        (3)  Organization and Content-Specific Vocabulary for Topic Two
        (4)  Comparing and Contrasting Topics One and Two

  • It provides a year-over-year structure as the genre-based cycles and phases spiral deeper and deeper to boost students up the literacy and proficiency ladder with every repeated focus on these literacy skills, with fresh content and topics, but building upon and extending students' communicative skills.
  • The Stepping Stones curricular framework thus provides the standards-aligned, literacy-focused pathway to proficiency and literacy in World Language that Tina had always needed to include in her French and Spanish courses.
