Teacher's College: Reading and Writing Project

     At PS 230, we offer our students a rich learning experience.  Every day our students receive instruction in reading, writing, math, social studies and science.  Our teachers use various curriculum resources to ensure that all students are able to achieve academic success. 


Reading and Writing


     PS 230 teachers use Units of Study from Columbia University's Teachers College Reading and Writing Project as a resource to create our reading and writing curricula.

     The Teachers College Reading and Writing Project offers links to free websites that parents can use to support their children's reading and writing.  

     Click on any of the subject areas ("Get Them Reading," "Get Them Writing") to discover online educational resources.
