03 sam class subtractionAt Nueva, literacy instruction has little to do with spelling lists and rote memorization. Instead, our lower and middle school students engage in Structured Word Inquiry, a learning process steeped in linguistic exploration and scientific inquiry. Rather than looking at English as a phonetic language, students look at the structure of words to uncover their definition. They make hypotheses about the meaning of words, investigate their assumptions, wrestle with wrong answers, and ultimately develop a deeper understanding of the English language.
