Each of the nine Categories of Learning are represented in the lessons. As the lessons are implemented, teachers will not only learn more about children’s development of word solving strategies but also gain invaluable insight into the English linguistic system. The goal is for teachers to feel confident in building their own sequence of explicit lessons that moves students systematically toward a flexible and powerful range of strategies. The mini lessons within the system are designed so that as teachers use them, they will always consider the child.
