ELA 3-8 Summary of Alignment & Usability

The instructional materials for Spider Learning ELA Grades 6-8 do not meet expectations of Gateway 1. The materials do include high quality, engaging texts for students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, but they do not include every required text type called for in the standards. Students are provided some opportunities to engage in text-based writing and discussion, but this is not comprehensive nor consistent.

Since the materials do not meet expectations for Gateway 1, they were not reviewed for Gateway 2 or Gateway 3.
