Welcome to Core Connections!
We specialize in providing schools K-12 with guidance and materials for establishing a holistic, vertically integrated reading and writing curriculum. Our consultants work closely at the school site throughout the year with administration, teachers, and students to achieve high-level student learning that exceeds expectations of state standardized tests. We have always approached reading and writing instruction as exercises in critical thinking and have consistently emphasized the connections and thinking skills common to both.
Thus, Core Connections is well positioned to help schools meet the increased rigor and expected reading-writing integration of the coming Common Core State Standards. Our interdisciplinary approach to literacy recognizes that what is being read is writing, and what is being written will be read.
As students learn to read, write, and think critically in response to a variety of texts across the curriculum, relationships are discovered and connections become clear.
