At Minaret Academy we base our esteemed Language Arts program on the renowned Journeys Language Arts Program, Writing Practice Program (WPP), and Word Voyage .The Journeys program provides a close reading routine and online tools to empower students to read rigorous texts. Using authentic text to anchor the core instruction, Journeys weaves the skills of close reading into a practical routine designed to have students read and reread for a variety of purposes, giving them more time to dig deeper into the text and allowing them to reinforce these concepts with their eBook and Close Reader. This intricate program empowers students with skill mastery, inspires them with authentic, award-winning text, and builds their confidence in the skills they need for college and careers and has been backed with proven results.
