Open Court Classics will challenge students to improve their higher-order thinking skills, language skills, and reading comprehension, while giving them the chance to read some of the finest examples of literature for young people. The selections for the program were developed using E.D. Hirschs Core Knowledge series, Accelerated Reader lists, and input from teachers and gifted and talented students. The program is flexibly designed with lessons that encourage independent study. Each grade level contains just three easy-to-use components and is easily adaptable for both the teachers and students needs.
