    Description
    The Challenge curriculum is designed to meet the needs of those students with strong reading, writing and organizational skills.  It is recommended that students read independently at ninth grade reading level or higher.  The curriculum will emphasize reading, writing, information literacy and listening and speaking skills.  Students will use metacognitive and active reading strategies to comprehend increasingly more complex material, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry and drama.  Students will use the writing process in order to create effective paragraphs and multi-paragraph pieces.  Emphasis will be placed on the Six Traits of Quality Writing.  Vocabulary instruction and word awareness will be embedded in the reading and writing processes.  Students will further develop media literary skills, use of the research process and their ability to evaluate both the relevance and reliability of information gathered.  Formal and informal speaking and discussion opportunities will be further promoted, as will listening for information.  Students will be expected to apply these skills in preparation for future years of study.
