Course Description
Students explore fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to develop comprehension strategies that will enable them to manipulate
grade-level texts of appropriate complexity and to communicate effectively in both writing and in speaking. Third grade
students begin to anchor their inquiries and responses directly from the text, whether literary or informational, using
increasingly specific and relevant evidence to support their claims and inferences. In this unit, students analytical skills will
extend to identifying main idea/theme, understanding character and plot development, and evaluating the impact of word
choice.
Whether it is our knowledge, skills, artistic abilities, or creative aptitude, sharing ourselves with others results in a richer
society, culture, and life for all. Third graders will deepen their understanding of this global theme through related stories,
poems, and biographies, as well as through their own writing within the various writing genres. Students learn that we
cannot do it alone, but together we can.

resources shall be used to deliver educational services and to maximize each students
opportunity to succeed. Teachers shall evaluate student progress, report grades that represent the
students academic achievement, and communicate official academic progress to students and
