English Language Arts
Are you looking for English Language Arts (ELA) resources to support all of your students, regardless of their reading or writing level? Want to leverage ELA instructional materials that are rooted in skills-based instruction in your classroom?
New Visions for Public Schools has developed ELA curriculum that supports students in their exploration of an arc of literary concepts and a sequence of skills that can be easily adapted by teachers to support students where they are and push them to where they need to be. Our units are built around unique themes and incorporate skills-based instruction. In addition, all of our resources are aligned with ELA Common Core Standards and include formative assessments that scaffold and build toward summative assessments.
We understand that teachers may use resources differently, so we have created and curated high-quality Open Educational Resource (OER) materials available in Google Drive that can be easily integrated into any ELA classroom; we encourage teachers to make their own copies of resources and thoughtfully modify to make them useful for their individual needs.

“New Visions' text suggestions, supplemental materials, and pacing calendars have really helped me organize my curriculum. My students have really responded to the thematic-based units because it has enabled them to connect the text to ongoing issues in their own communities and the world at large.”
- Jessica Barrett, ELA Teacher at Manhattan Bridges High School
“Attending the New Visions’ PD events this year has been valuable to my teaching practice. I was given resources appropriate for both scaffolding and challenging my students and walked away with lots of new ideas on how to ensure student voices do not get lost in prescriptive writing.”
- Vlada Shlyavas, ELA teacher at New Visions Charter High School for Advanced Math & Science III
