The Pacing Guides available here are PCI's recommended pathway for middle school school students. At the heart of the course is PCI's adopted ELA program Study Sync. Following is a list of important considerations for those responsible for student learning: *The pacing guides are backwards mapped from assessed standards and skills. *The selections and lessons are carefully chosen to: a) Provide students the exposure to and practice with the most often tested skills b) Prepare students to have appropriate and relevant readings to draw upon for textual evidence when they complete the Extended Writing Project. *All English courses grades 6-12 will begin each semester with a 3-week Expository Reading and Writing module which provide valuable exposure to the critical reading and writing skills that expose students to the college pathway.
