Benchmark Advance

Benchmark Advance is our reading series.  It meets the specific literacy needs of all California's teachers and students. The program content is aligned to national and state standards. It is customized to both California's language arts content and English language development standards. Lessons are informed by ongoing assessment of each student's strengths and needs to meet California standards.

The curriculum, created specifically for California, is grounded in science-based research as well as in the wisdom and expertise of those recognized as most knowledgeable in teaching reading, writing, and communicating. Reading selections are culturally sensitive, engaging, and designed for the inclusion of all students: English learners, on level, approaching, and beyond.
