When I first went to the website, I thought I was at the wrong page. The website was nothing like I remembered. It was corporate looking; it lost the feel of fun and educational feel. Now that isn’t a bad thing especially when you are expanding your company’s possibilities to new global market. So although it sounds negative, I like the changes that were made. The site is clean, easy to navigate, visually pleasing and you can find the information that I was looking for without digging.
Now the exciting thing I came across was that News-2- you is releasing a COMPLETE curriculum in the coming year. The curriculum is going to be called Unique Learning System. http://www.uniquelearningsystem.com/
At a glance:
- Four separate grade bands. Allows you to teach age-appropriate material regardless of the students’ prior abilities.
- 25 activities are available to download and use immediately.
- Meet the core curriculum standards of state and national
- All of lessons are aligned to content standards and include differentiated tasks and progress monitoring strategies to meet the needs of every student.
I can't wait to see what the Unique Curriculum looks like. I say ... It's about time. I might even decide to head back to the classroom since there is now a curriculum to follow and they say I won't have to spend hours with adaptations and modifications.
