Avenue Notes provide two spaces for students to organize their notes and connect to new ideas. Avenue Notes make explicit for students that they are to actively take notes and capture information that is both written and spoken. What teachers say about the notes they are giving is often times more valuable than the notes themselves. This note taking system helps students record all of the important ideas during a lecture and helps them make sense of what they are learning.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
