English/Language Arts

Scholars take double blocks of English/Language Arts every day and our teachers use the Wilson Literacy Program. Since the majority of our students come to us behind grade level, these double blocks allow them to remediate skills while exposing them advanced material and helping them exceed the expectations of grade-level standards.

Grizzlies Prep uses a core curriculum program (or combination of curricula resources) aligned to Tennessee content standards as well as ACT and national core content standards.  The curriculum has a research-based scope and sequence and, it includes the key elements of a quality English language arts (ELA) instruction, including communication, logic, media, informational text, literature, writing and research and language.  Grizzlies Prep also emphasizes the integration of content rich vocabulary into cross-curricular instruction.
