CCSS is all about performance.

TaskPERFORMTM tasks & TASKassessmentTM performance assessments exemplify how teachers and instructional leaders may create performance-based instruction and assessment. We model real-world scenarios to frame one or more of the unit’s CCSS standards and to take students to Depth of Knowledge level 4.

Effective instructional techniques develop necessary skills.

TargetSTRATEGIES® activities provide on-grade-level modeling, guided practice, and independent practice for the unit’s essential and supporting standards.

Mastering skills builds confidence.

TargetFUNDAMENTALS® interventions review prerequisite skills for those students who need extra help to access the unit’s essential and supporting standards.

Participation from home improves learning.

PALpackets® school-to-home connections get parents and caregivers involved in their children’s learning. Each packet includes skill-based activities that align to the unit’s essential skills and supporting standards. We redefine “homework” as adults and children participating together for more and better learning.

Each unit may be resequenced to match your district’s curriculum or pacing.
