Meet the Curriculum, The Series – February & March

It’s curriculum adoption season, and like clockwork, we have begun to get inquiry emails. As early adopters of high-quality instructional materials, we are frequently asked for our insights about our curricula, which we are happy to share.

Knowing that many district are seeking more info, we decided to hold a series of ‘Meet the Curriculum’ nights – an opportunity to hear straight talk from educators about the ELA curricula used in our districts. In these webinars, we’ll highlight the distinguishing aspects of each curriculum, share key experiences, and save lots of time for Q&A.

We also recommend viewing our previous webinar, Understanding the ELA Curriculum Landscape, in which we discussed the characteristics that these curricula have in common.
