Build Your Content Knowledge

Prepare to teach a unit with on-demand online learning modules that build understanding of the unit texts, discuss the unit's essential questions, and provide guidance on measuring student progress.

Simplify Lesson Planning

Access enhanced lesson plans for each lesson that include:

Content-specific supports for meeting the needs of a range of learners, including suggested language, foundational skills, and vocabulary supports, suggestions for building background knowledge, and opportunities for enrichment.

Recommendations on pacing and lesson structure, including suggestions for engaging with the text and using the key questions and target task to help students build meaning.

Monitor Student Learning

Track student progress toward learning goals using the essential tasks identified across each unit. Download a detailed essential task guide that identifies why each task is important, highlights key understandings of the task, and identifies potential misconceptions and suggested supports to build understanding. Additional progress monitoring guidance is also included within enhanced lesson plans.

Help students develop foundational reading skills with content-aligned fluency assessments in each unit. Access guidance for using the assessments, as well as supports and interventions for reading fluency in our ELA Teacher Tools.

Reflect on student progress and your teaching practice using our data analysis package. Use our protocol and template to analyze student work, look for classwide trends, and plan your next steps, either alone or with your team.

Save Time on Handouts

No more cut & paste! Customize student handouts with each lesson’s key questions and target tasks with our built-in handout editor.
