Below are the RRT Modules for English 11 that are available should a district not provide their own scope and sequence for a custom curriculum developed from our bank of standards-aligned lessons. These standards-aligned lessons can be reconfigured from the extended text curriculum, short text curriculum, and the Common Core grammar curriculum. Lessons listed below in the modules follow New York Common Core adopted standards for the Reading and Writing. In addition, as Grammar is decided at the local level as far as alignment for modules, you will find the available Grammar lessons in the Grammar curriculum listed at the end of the English descriptions. In a base RRT course, these will be interspersed unless a scope and sequence is shared by the district. Lessons are designed using a best practice model that includes scaffolding, vocabulary, guided practice, independent practice, and written response opportunities for students to evaluate, debate, and summarize.
