Grade-Specific Activities

An Integrated Approach to Language Arts and Writing

Redbird Language Arts & Writing helps students build strong foundational writing skills. Our integrated approach to Language Arts and writing interweaves instruction and rigorous practice in grammar, writing, and reading. Reading is incorporated into each unit because research shows that students often struggle to learn and master English Language Arts skills when those skills are taught in isolation. With our integrated approach, students can experience the connection between the different language domains as they read passages related to the skills they’re learning in grammar and writing.

Course Structure

Each grade level of content has 9–10 units that focus on a form of writing or reading. Units are divided into lessons that include instruction (lectures) and practice (item sets), skill-building games, and Writing Reviews



Lessons are structured to expose students to reading, parts of speech, paragraph analysis, sentence composition, and sentence structures. Some lessons cover new concepts, while others provide practice with concepts already introduced. This content variation provides an engaging and rich continuous experience for students.

Writing Reviews


Writing Reviews guide students through composing a cohesive piece of writing and provide opportunities for students to synthesize what they’ve learned in the program so far. Students receive three Writing Reviews within each grade level of content to create a short informative, narrative, and opinion/argumentative essay based on real-world topics. The program provides instructions on each piece of the essay as they write, such as the introduction and supporting claims, so they don’t get overwhelmed or discouraged. Error-specific feedback at each stage of writing allows students to revise, improve, and continue learning.


Writing Reviews complement and support what educators are teaching in the classroom. Though direct teacher input isn’t required for the student to complete the essays, teachers can give additional feedback at any stage to further improve student learning.
