New Expert-led Curriculum Identifies and Maps Essential Skills for Success
Education.com has organized an entire curriculum around essential skills across math and ELA from Pre-K through 5th grade. It was created by expert teachers and curriculum designers across the nation and led by an in-house team of experienced graduates and advisors from institutions including Stanford University and UC Berkeley graduate schools of education.
The new curriculum organizes skills in an easy-to-follow sequence. Each skill logically builds on the previous, making it easier than ever for parents and teachers to accurately track how their children are progressing and where they might need support. This organization also makes it very easy to target a specific skill or broader subject overall within Education.com’s massive learning library of resources.
