English Language Arts

Northwest Education Services' (formerly TBAISD) literacy team members provide support services to all local districts in Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, and Leelanau counties. These services are based on the Michigan English Language Arts State Standards (Common Core State Standards) Kindergarten through 12th grade. This team offers guidance and support in the areas of English Language Arts curriculum, instruction and assessment, such as: 

  • Professional Learning Opportunities
  • Committee Work
  • Data Analysis and Use for Instruction and Intervention
  • Resource Guidance, Selection, and Development
  • Teacher Coaching 

These services are available through area-wide professional learning and focused support as needed at a building or district level. Our goal is to ensure leadership and instruction for area teachers that results in student achievement and growth in English Language Arts.

The instructional resources site linked below is designed to help support English Language Arts educators and administrators in the North Ed service area .  If you are looking for specific information and cannot find it in the resources site, please contact us and we will get back with you as soon as possible.
