    How do Reading Workshop and Wonders complement each other?

    The California ELA Standards are the content that educators must teach. The standards cover the specifics for teaching reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Grammar and vocabulary are also covered. In the Fullerton School District, we support broad literacy practices and teach all areas of English Language Arts. The Reading Units of Study used within a Reading Workshop model is one essential approach for teaching the standards. The goal of Reading Workshop is to develop communities of readers that are proficient in skills and strategies that support accountable independent reading and more. This is one aspect of teaching English Language Arts. We rely on the resources and materials provided by McGraw-Hill's Wonders program for all the other areas specified in the ELA Standards. Wonders supports foundational skills, text complexity, text-based questions, and many other areas that build such skills. Wonders strongly complements the Reading Workshop model, especially for developing and supporting capable, independent readers.
