BOOKS NOT BASALS

With Wit & Wisdom, every text a student touches is authentic and of the highest quality. Students use these texts at every turn — to learn, and eventually master, essential reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar, and vocabulary. Instead of basals, students read books they love, to build knowledge of important topics and master literacy skills. All students read and communicate about grade-level texts, with suggestions for support included at key moments in lessons.

INTEGRATED NOT ISOLATED

Students practice reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language based in text. All strands of the standards are integrated throughout each module with:

  • Instructional Routines that empower students to tackle complex texts with increasing independence within and across grades. 
  • Text-Dependent Questions to guide students to a deep understanding and establish a basis for the use of evidence in oral and written communication. 
  • Explicit Writing Instruction to empower students to write essays, narratives, arguments, and informational pieces.  
  • Text-Based Vocabulary that provides the basis for morphology and word work.  
  • Formative Assessments that inform teachers and students on progress towards knowledge and skill mastery.  

BUILDS KNOWLEDGE

Wit & Wisdom is composed of four modules per grade level. Each one artfully explores a specific topic to develop depth of understanding and inspire curiosity. Our curriculum overview webinar sessions show educators what Wit & Wisdom curriculum resources are available and how to get the most out of your Great Minds account.
