Are your teachers ready for new ELA materials for middle school? Take a look at Learning List’s reviews of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Into Literature.
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Into Literature is a comprehensive literacy program that supports English language arts instruction for grades 6 through 8. Content is available in print and digital formats. Instruction develops students’ reading, writing, listening, speaking, and thinking skills with learning activities that provide numerous opportunities and structures for effective group and partner work.
Into Reading integrates reading and writing instruction. The program provides authentic texts across a variety of genres and reading levels. While most texts are within a Lexile range that is grade appropriate, some texts are below grade level. Commonly read texts are not adjustable by reading Lexile and alternative texts are not provided. Text sets for each unit correlate to numerous themes and topics. While all topics are age appropriate, some topics, such as the Holocaust and surviving a hurricane may be delicate for students.
Into Reading supports a blended learning environment with numerous online tools and resources. Online teacher and student resources are housed in Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Ed: Your Friend in Learning platform. A robust set of online teacher resources provide content knowledge, pedagogy, and implementation assistance. Successful implementation of this program will require time for professional learning and planning throughout the school year.
