Literature and History Are More Important in Grades 6 Through 8
The Rise program does “teach to the test,” (the STAAR test) to the extent that test-formatted materials are a regular supplement to daily instruction. However, instruction at Rise Academy goes far beyond "teaching to the test." Literature, for example, becomes one focus in the upper grades.
Rise students read original works such as Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and Macbeth. Compelling novels such as Of Mice and Men, Animal Farm, and Night are typical works used in 7th and 8th grades.
Students also apply the study of American history and government to contemporary issues such as the World War II internment of Japanese Americans. These studies involve significant writing and research skills.
