English Curriculum

CUSD adopted a new English curriculum for 11th and 12th grade students.  

CUSD adopted My Perspective as the 11th grade curriculum; we will utilize this curriculum at Cesar Chavez .  

CUSD adopted ERWC as the 12th grade English curriculum; we will utilize this curriculum at Cesar Chavez.

In addition to the CUSD adopted curriculum, Chavez will incorporate curriculum developed by Young Chicago Authors, Hip-Hop Language Arts. This curriculum is researched based and recognized by the United States Department of Education.

My Perspective, ERWC and  Hip-Hop Language Arts Textual Analysis is combined to foster a literacy-based instructional environment where passion can meet grit, rigor can meet high expectations, and student engagement can  result in mastery of the Common Core State Standards.
Through language experiences of reading, writing, speaking, and listening our English curriculum's primary goal is to produce reflective, critical, and creative thinkers
