Effective Teaching with Studies Weekly Professional Development on Demand

April 10, 2020 • Studies Weekly

At Studies Weekly, we are continually looking to help our customers utilize our curriculum and provide you with the resources you need to teach students more effectively. Our goal is to make using Studies Weekly learning materials easy so you can plan less and teach more.

Our online learning platform, Studies Weekly Online, not only has the standards-based, interactive curriculum you need, but also training, lesson plans, graphic organizers, and activities to help you engage students.

Accessing PD on Demand

Once logged into your account, go to the Training and Resources section and click on the Training category to access the PD library.

You’ll find videos for several types of PD training. Onboarding is a great place to start with video tutorials to help you navigate everything from managing publications, adding students, and browsing articles to assigning and customizing assessments or running reports.

Instructional Resources

The Resources category has many classroom planning suggestions, activities, graphic organizers, and suggested lesson plans to help you.

One of the best places to start in this section is the Suggested Instructional Plan PDF. You can download and print it, and use it as a reference as you plan out your weekly units with Studies Weekly.
