New Curriculum Review: StrongMind’s Texas English Language Arts

Is your district looking for digital instructional materials for high school English?  Take a look at Learning List’s reviews of StrongMind’s Texas English Language Arts.

StrongMind’s Texas English Language Arts is a comprehensive English language arts program for grades 9-12 (English I-IV). The materials are fully digital. StrongMind Courseware focuses on delivering a powerful and engaging learning experience.  Materials are organized topically and/or thematically in a logical sequence. 

The materials require students to read, analyze text, and write in every lesson. All required reading selections are included with the material, but may not fully represent the selections traditionally used in English classes. Writing instruction is embedded throughout each unit.

Texas English Language Arts is intended for independent learning, but provides opportunities for collaboration among students through the consistent use of discussion boards. Instruction is segmented into manageable chunks to support student success. Material includes a text-to-speech reader, but does not provide any additional adaptions for special populations or any suggestions for differentiated instruction.

This fully digital product provides resources and materials on the Canvas platform to support blended learning or a flipped classroom. Teacher facilitation will increase student success with this material.

Learning List has conducted a qualitative review of the instructional content and a review of the technology compatibility for each grade level covered by this material.  To learn more about this product and thousands more PreK-12 instructional materials, contact Learning List for subscription information.
