Commonlit is a research-based, classroom extension tool for teachers and students. It was created to help students supplement what was being taught in the classroom, a well as help all levels of reading comprehension.
Beginning this semester, English I has created weekly lessons that can be supported by Commonlit. These weekly lessons are in most cases review of previous concepts taught in class and also ask students to read with critical focus and comprehension. Each week revolves around a theme where various genres are reviewed, and analyzed. Commonlit assignments then extend these concepts while out of the classroom.
Our goal is to help motivate and inspire students to not only desire excellence in their studies, but to take control of how their devotion and focus contributes to their own learning well beyond the high school setting.
Please encourage struggling students to use Wildkat Lunch and/or teacher tutorials if needed.
