Pearson Literature and
Language Central for California

The top five reasons Pearson makes sense

1. Connected ELD Support ► Language Central: (Program 2) ELD support is available with concepts and skills tied directly back to the core program with a full-color, visual student work text; complete Teacher’s Edition; full kit of digital and ancillary support; and systematic 5-day plans

2. Motivation ► Reality Central: We’re proud to offer a complete set of non-fiction, issue-based articles that align directly to each core selection of the Literature program. Our series of articles act an anticipatory set, provoking student discussion and debate with issues today’s 21st-Century students live, while motivating them to read the connected selection in the anthology.

3. Differentiation ► Paired, Leveled Selections: Pearson offers two paths for your diverse students; one accessible selection and one challenging selection that each focus on the same California standards (reading, writing, grammar, listening, and speaking skills) regardless of which leveled selection was chosen. Teachers and students are given back the power of choice.

4. Instructional Design ► UbD Lead author, Grant Wiggins, promotes the transfer of learning developed through a carefully crafted Big Question. These timeless unit-based Big Questions invite all students to bring their personal backgrounds and experiences into the daily learning process. Pearson remains true to Understanding by Design principals, allowing for teachers to build connections with rich selections, non-fiction pieces, novels, writing, and conventions.

5. Powerful Technology ► This dynamic, interactive site provides incomparable digital access to content. The online curriculum offers vocabulary support, instant assessments, reporting, and remediation PLUS engaging videos, automatically leveled selections, active grammar, songs, and full audio of each selection.
