You can find Topic Tools on the Subject Select screen under Science. Stay tuned! More tools will be added in the released grades and tool for first and second grade will be released in the coming months.
COMMON CORE STANDARDS SWITCH
We're Making the Transition a Bit Easier for You!
Education City is committed to helping schools improve the quality of education and we look forward to new partnerships to come!
Since April, 50+ schools across the country have been piloting our brand new Learn English (ELL) module.
Look for this module to be released in late October!
"The Learn English program has been very helpful for both my newcomer ELL students and myself. I have had over 10 Iraqi-refugee or Spanish-speaking newcomers in the last two school years and the need for differentiation and extra attention is difficult to fit in. Learn English has helped with this dilemma. My students enjoy going on the computer and I see they are engaged in the program. They also pick up many English words more quickly. It has always been difficult to get the pronunciation practice/hearing part for newcomers. I can expose them to the pictures and spellings of the words, but to find the time and manpower to have someone pronounce the words for them is difficult. This program takes care of that. My students and I have benefited from Education City's Learn English program!"
