New Reviews: Learning A-Z’s Reading A-Z

Learning A-Z’s Reading A-Z is a supplemental program that supports reading instruction in grades K-5. Resources are available online and may be downloaded and printed or displayed using classroom projection devices. Instruction focuses on developing proficient readers using texts that match students’ individual reading levels. Learning List has recently completed reviews of Learning A-Z’s materials for grades K-5.

Models Matter

When selecting materials, one important criterion educators should consider is the instructional model on which the material is based. Resources should mirror and support the model the district uses or else instruction may become disjointed. Over the next few months, Learning List’s blog will discuss the instructional models most frequently implemented in the products we review. Our discussion will seek to highlight the key attributes of each model and clarify where a particular model may or may not be an appropriate structure for content.

Learning List and Publishers Collaborate to Benefit Educators and Students

As the industry-leading instructional materials review service for schools and districts, Learning List has designed a robust review process specifically intended to inform educator choice. As one curriculum director observed:
“Learning List was built from the ground up to respond specifically to educators’ needs. And it does.”

Tasha Barker Joins Learning List As Director of Alignment

We are pleased to announce that Tasha Barker has joined Learning List as Director of Alignment. Having used the service in her most recent district, she also shared how Learning List can make a difference, “…It was a nice complement to our standardized process, for it enhanced the credibility and objectivity required to select standards-aligned materials.”

Increased Math Scores Attributed to Reasoning Mind Curriculum

Reasoning Mind is an interactive, online, mathematics curriculum that provides individualized instruction for students in grades 2-6. Reasoning Mind’s case studies showed that students who used their curriculum in 5th and 6th grades were more than twice as likely to accelerate into Algebra I in 8th grade as non-Reasoning Mind students.
