What's Included in
Wit & Wisdom
Comprehensive English Language Arts
See what's included in Wit & Wisdom®, our comprehensive K–8 ELA curriculum that features knowledge-building lessons and carefully curated selections of art and books that inspire in students a passion for reading and writing.
Every grade level includes four spiral-bound Teacher Editions with complete lesson plans and clearly stated learning goals by lesson as well as standards alignment details and in-context notes to give teachers the support they need when they need it.
Our Student Editions are workbooks that support student engagement and instruction with graphic organizers, evidence organizers, and other student materials.
Instead of basals or leveled readers, Wit & Wisdom students read authentic, high-quality, complex texts to build enduring knowledge of the world around them. To meet the qualifications for this collection, the texts must aid social and emotional development, allowing students to see themselves and others in each lesson.
Volume of Reading
Volume of Reading texts are literary and informational texts that teachers can use for additional classroom instruction. Wit & Wisdom Volume of Reading texts help students of all abilities expand their knowledge of each module topic.
