About Gourmet Learning*
The Gourmet Learning team has 100+ years of collective classroom experience. Their programs are research-based principles and practices from The National Reading Panel, NCTM, NSTA, Marzano’s and Hunter’s work on effective classroom strategies.
Each reading program actively involves students in critical thinking strategies and application of skills, based on the work of Benjamin Bloom. Lessons are comprehensive in scope, modular in design and are ideal for differentiated instruction.
Our scope includes Math and Reading objectives in many states. “Modular Design” means you can use our materials to teach or reinforce a single learning objective, a summer school course of selected objectives or an entire year’s curriculum. For more information, click here.
