How I Use It
As students work independently, I am able to track student progress and monitor their knowledge and skill development. This allows me to promote asking more questions rather than just giving the answers. Promotes literacy as well as general knowledge.
My Take
Lessons are clearly presented in a logical order. While all important facts are taught, many opportunities for critical thinking exist, challenging my students to understand more deeply. One practical aspect that I appreciated was that all materials come in coordination with each lesson and are ready to use! As noted in my review, I believe that this product is extremely useful for challenging gifted learners, but I feel it falls short in meeting the needs of students with different learning styles or those who may not catch on as quickly.
