ACADEMIC LANGUAGE, LITERACY AND CONTENT FOR AN EDUCATION IN ENGLISH.
Reach Higher guides students to learn English, learn about the world, and learn about themselves through authentic content with a global perspective. Primary students develop the academic language skills and content knowledge they need to get an education in English.
The program uses National Geographic science and social studies content and authentic literature to build content knowledge and develop English literacy through inquiry-based learning. Students work with the content to develop critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills needed to succeed in their academic studies.
Reach Higher provides students with the skills and strategies to understand stories and literature, and to work with more complex texts that include facts and background knowledge in the subject areas of science and social studies.
Reach Higher teaches the language students need – vocabulary, phonics, reading, writing, and conversations – to work with authentic academic content in English.
