The project provides motivated individuals a unique opportunity to support educators and students in actualizing the Next Generation Learning Standards for English Language Arts by creating custom curricular content that is centered around culturally relevant and sustaining texts, themes, and instructional practices. Curriculum writers will engage in a creative, iterative, and collaborative development process to produce lessons and practice activities that are rigorous, engaging, and meaningful to students.

About PCG’s Education Consulting Service Line
PCG’s Education Consulting Service Line works with states, districts, and schools to address a wide spectrum of needs such as curriculum development, instructional resources audits, design and facilitation of professional development and professional learning communities, school improvement, and program reviews.
Project engagements have included the development of the grades 6–12 English Language Arts curriculum for the New York State Education Department and the delivery of implementation services across several states; the design and delivery of a system of a K–3 professional learning program for the Connecticut State Department of Education; and the creation of training and resources to support standards implementation for the Florida Department of Education. We recently collaborated with Chicago Public Schools (IL) to develop a full-year, standards-aligned digital curriculum for PK–12 English Language Arts and mathematics and are providing asynchronous and synchronous professional learning to teachers and administrators to support implementation. Currently, we are also developing a K–5 ELA curriculum in partnership with Pinellas County Schools (FL) to support their transition to the new Florida B.E.S.T. standards. We are also partnering with the Texas Education Agency to develop and/or revise several curricula to respond to stakeholder feedback, including K–12 Reading Language Arts, K–6 Spanish Language Arts, K–5 Mathematics, K–5 Social Studies, K–2 Spanish Skills, K–5 Science, and K–5 Integrated (Science, Social Studies, Reading Language Arts).
Responsibilities and expectations of Curriculum Writers include the following.
