The Write-In Student Text uses a magazine-like format to engage students in their lessons. A verbal/visual blend of images and engaging text promotes a student-centered approach to learning that integrates interesting sidebar tidbits, friendly fonts, and lots of short, interactive exercises that ask students to predict, explain, synthesize, define, and summarize elements of the text.
The Student Interactive Digital Curriculum is more than a supplemental companion e-book text, but rather provides a unique online lesson. Lessons and virtual labs use simulations, animations, and videos to teach students, and can be assigned to individual students, demonstrated through a projector, or displayed on a digital whiteboard.
The Teacher Online Management Center is designed to make it easy to plan, teach, assess and track student progress toward mastering content and skills. Video-centered, inquiry-based projects consist of a video, teacher support pages, and student activity workshops, with 1-2 included per module. Teacher lessons guide instructors through activities, questions, misconceptions, differentiated instruction, preparation, troubleshooting, expected results, learning goals, estimated times for each activity, and more. Unit planning pages offer review and instruction on integrating the print text, digital curriculum, and hands-on inquiry. Assessments can be given online or printed, and both formative and summative assessments are included.
Teacher features include:
- Program resources that can be easily previewed in PDF format and downloaded for editing.
- The ability to assign and schedule resources online, which will appear in your students' inboxes.
- Automatically scored quizzes and tests
- Student progress can be easily monitored and tracked.
Please Note: These books teach "billions of years" and evolution.
