Leaders of Their Own Learning helps teachers master the student-engaged assessment strategies which are infused throughout the curriculum (such as learning targets, checking for understanding, and models, critique, and descriptive feedback). It also presents other powerful strategies (like student-led conferences) that help students own their learning.
Transformational Literacy: Making the Common Core Shift with Work That Matters equips teachers to deepen their implementation of the curriculum, sharpen their understanding of the instructional shifts, internalize curriculum design decisions, and support all students to excel.
Full-Year packages include just central texts, OR central texts along with printed teacher curriculum, and student packets. These packages support up to 25 students. You choose the combination of modules.
Go á la carte if you’ve already purchased some of your central texts but want to complete your materials with additional books or the printed curriculum components.
