Studies Weekly Educational Tools Are in Florida!
Studies Weekly is excited to announce the State of Florida Department of Education has officially adopted the Studies Weekly curriculum for use in all K-5 classrooms for a five-year adoption term. Studies Weekly is officially adopted now in 8 states, including the recent adoption in California.
Educational Tools Available Statewide
What does this mean for Florida educators exactly? For starters, the official adoption puts us on the approved vendor list, making our educational tools more readily available for teachers. Our products are designed to help educators immerse their students in the Social Studies K-5 Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) and the Language Arts Florida Standards (LAFS) in grades K-5 using only one student edition per week. The publications require minimal preparation.
Each annual subscription includes 32 weekly units per grade. Our professional educators designed each issue so that you can teach it in just 120-180 minutes of class time per week.
Increased Student Engagement
Using our educational tools with classroom lessons creates a highly adaptable implementation and ensures completion of the correlated curriculum content. Teachers will enjoy flexibility when planning for differentiated instruction, inquiry-based learning, self-directed learning, and re-teaching. Your students will enjoy engaging with print and digital tools that we specifically designed to fit their educational needs.
Studies Weekly content includes vivid illustrations and colorful maps along with primary source pictures and documents that appeal to students. Studies Weekly’s hard copy of the publication involves students in their own learning because it is consumable. Writing, highlighting, and drawing on the product creates a sense of ownership of the content and allows for close reading.
“There is a lot that makes us different. We use a standards-based curriculum to engage students, build on prior learning, and develop critical thinking skills. Our format is age-appropriate, user-friendly, and less intimidating than traditional textbooks,” said Kim Mogilevsky, Chief Product Officer.
