LISD PACE (Programs for Advancement, Challenge, and Enrichment) Language Arts is a program for students in Leander ISD who are advanced learners in the areas of reading and writing. The goal is to provide instruction to continue developing advanced proficiencies. Advanced instruction for PACE students focuses on more challenging materials with complex plots and developed characters, facilitates critical and creative reading, has flexibility in assignments, and nurtures a student’s divergent and diversified interests. PACE Language Arts students are identified for enriched reading and writing lessons that occur during small group or individual instruction within each classroom. During this time the teacher focuses instruction on the areas that will move a student into the advanced range at their level on the DRA2/EDL2 and the Leander ISD writing rubrics.
