Program Components

WorldWise:Content-Based Learning™ provides students with gradually increasing challenges. WorldWise:Content-Based Learning™ texts introduce and revisit themes and concepts across the reading stages and build on initial concepts with increasing complexity. At each developmental reading stage, WorldWise:Content-Based Learning™ student books cover natural, physical, earth and life science, as well as relevant social studies topics.

WorldWise:Content-Based Learning™ Lesson Plan Cards support teachers in creating an active learning environment, in which all students know how to use content area reading strategies to think within and beyond any given text. Each card identifies the connection to state standards for informational texts as well as to one or more of the science or social studies outcomes. Educators can easily integrate these other content areas into their literacy block.
