Time and patience are key. As mentioned in part 2 of our blog series, realistically educators will need to balance an increase of instructional time or a multi-year approach to bridge learning gaps.
ConstructEd is a service offered to create, customize, and adopt K-12 print or digital needs easily and affordably. During the last few years, we have worked alongside districts to create a textbook that is truly theirs.
The biggest question on educator’s minds is how to best address learning loss. There is no simple answer and although ideas ranging from repeating a grade level, one-on-one tutoring, to summer school have been tossed around there is no “one solution” that meets individual student needs.

5 Tips for Teachers to Finish the School Year Strong
These last couple of months of school can often be the most trying on teachers! Students are starting to see the prize at the end of the year that is summer vacation, and as the days move forward it can often be harder and harder to keep everyone focused on the present. Here are some quick tips.

“Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory."
-George S. Patton
A new year is in full swing. It’s never too late to adopt some New Year’s resolutions!
1. Work Smarter, Not Harder
It seems like all too often we spend our time at work and at home doing the same tasks over and over again. The other culprit? Distraction. Whether it’s your teacher friends who love to pop into your room and chat or the urge to check your smartphone too much, it seems like there is always something.
Customizing may seem like a big project to take on, but with the help of Kendall Hunt we can streamline the process.

My best friends and I finished our freshman year of college last May. As students, we studied a lot but listened to music even more. At school we had multiple playlists dedicated to different moods, styles, and activities. We listened to one playlist while we did homework, we blasted a different playlist while we exercised, and we kept another in the background while we just enjoyed each other’s company.

There seems to be a lot of talk recently about Inquiry Based
Bartholomew Consolidated (IN) recently created a one-semester math course for students who had successfully completed Algebra 2 that did not wish to take standard precalculus. This course covers traditional high school trigonometry topics without the same level of abstraction as a precalculus course.
Kern High School District in Bakersfield, California, delayed adopting new Algebra curriculum longer than most districts because they wanted to see what curriculum would be available for new standards and practices. They agreed they wanted something different than what they were using previously.

We believe that learning through doing allows students to experience what they are learning about in a way that cannot be obtained simply through reading or writing.

As the weather gets colder and students spend more time cooped up indoors after heading home from school each day, there is no better time to stress the importance of reading at home.
