The College Board’s SpringBoard English Language Arts, English I ©2019 Texas Edition, allows students to develop and refine skills in critical thinking, close reading, writing, and conducting research. Based on the Understanding by Design model, the curriculum teaches the skills and knowledge that matter most to meet AP and college and career readiness standards.
With a special focus on close reading, the instruction provides students and teachers with strategies and structure for developing this key skill. Students encounter compelling fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama, visuals, and film. The program also provides students with the support they need to write in all major modes, emphasizing argumentative, informational, and narrative writing.
Rainbow provided full-service development for all editorial, design, and production tasks for the English I Student Edition and Teacher Edition.
