Our literacy team has decades of experience creating, updating, and aligning literacy content for pre-K, elementary, middle school, and high school curriculum. We believe there is no greater mission than creating exceptional literacy content for students. Contact us, and let us help you with your materials!
Our expertise includes the direction and preparation of the following:
Our literacy content development includes developing curricular materials based on national and state standards for grades K-12, including student- and teacher-facing materials for print and online.
We develop formative, summative, and high stakes assessments, including Tech Enhanced Items, for K-12. We are a Learnosity content partner and have experience working in other off-the-shelf or custom solutions.
We incorporate pedagogical best practices to provide teachers with innovative and inclusive ways to engage students.
We keep abreast of state tests in order to create materials that mimic the tests, provide additional support, and provide a variety of practice options for students. We also excel at adapting materials from state to state.
Our literacy content development teams are experts in developing targeted supplemental programs to address remediation, enrichment, intervention, and instructional needs, including fiction, non-fiction leveled readers, and graphic novels.
Our content and design teams work together to create engaging literacy readers that draw students in through text and illustration.
Westchester’s literacy content development team has extensive experience developing interactive programs on a variety of platforms. The team quickly learns client content management systems and applies best practices in developing engaging and interactive content.
Our content teams do more than just create great content—they are also experienced educators who understand how to frame and pace content so that students can grow along their learning paths (and how to identify prerequisite skills to aid students who need additional support).
Westchester’s content team often partners with clients at the outset of a program in order to conceptualize and focus test the program. Once the vision for the program is set, our team can help with the roll-out steps, including guideline development, to ensure the project execution is smooth.
We understand that content that is inclusive and that helps students connect to themselves and the world around them provides better long term academic and social outcomes, so we embed best practices in SEL and CRE into all content we develop.
A client developed a teachers’ edition of a new core literacy program for elementary grade-level students by consolidating existing content from multiple print and digital supplementary programs. Some of the material existed only in outdated formats, requiring complex editorial and production skillsets to integrate programs to ensure a coherent new look and feel.
