How Can Teachers Use It?

Teachers can use LearnZillion's 4th Grade ELA offering for two main purposes: to improve their own instruction, and to directly support students' learning. Teachers can use the high-quality lessons to better understand and teach to the Common Core. Each lesson includes videos, slides of the lesson, graphic organizers, and copies of the accompanying text. Reviewing these resources can help teachers discover strong teaching strategies that can transcend the included assignments.

In your class, use the read-aloud videos to support students who are struggling -- the graphic organizers provide helpful scaffolding for reading and writing tasks. The guided practice videos include clear think-alouds that help students better understand the assignments. Teachers can create playlists individualized for each student as well as for groups. These lessons could easily provide a strong initial assignment for each of the ELA standards covered.
