CLAVES stands for Cultivating Linguistic Awareness for Voice and Equity in Schools. CLAVES is a language-based literacy curriculum designed for upper elementary multilingual students and their peers. In a recent field trial, the CLAVES curriculum was shown to have measurable impacts on language, reading, and writing outcomes for multilingual students. The CLAVES instructional principles are described in this recent article. Over the span of three justice-oriented units, students engage in critical discourse and deepen their understandings of language in its multiple forms, including reading and writing.
