Language Arts Integration

Social Studies and Language Arts instruction is integrated in Mind Missions learning. Combined language arts and social studies can lead to powerful gains for students. There are a few key reasons. First, kids often love non-fiction content found in social studies. They love to learn about places around the world and interesting people from yesterday and today. This curiosity motivates students to make progress in reading skills. Literacy experts are calling for students to increase time spent reading informational text. Mind Missions offers leveled informational text that allows practice in this specific reading skill. Mind Missions stories also provide essential background knowledge for comprehension success. Reading information in social studies prepares students for the future. It enables them to read informational text, conduct research, and analyze current events. Finally, the integration of language arts and social studies supports that social studies instruction isn't lost with the emphasis on reading and math happening in most schools.
