Full lesson plan

Digitized for success

Support for Close Reading

Our easy-to-use slides and teaching notes empower teachers to lead close readings of grade-level texts. Students learn to dive deep into these texts and discuss and write about their analyses.

Tools for differentiation

We make it easy for teachers to provide differentiated instruction. Each lesson builds on formative practices and can be tuned and assigned to small groups and individual students.

Integrated digital assessments

We’ve integrated digitized section assessments so that teachers get auto-scored formative feedback on student learning, and students get more practice with tech-enabled questions.

RAND Study

In a 2016 study that surveyed teachers nationwide, RAND found that teachers using Guidebooks in Louisiana demonstrated a better understanding of state standards and reported undertaking more instructional activities that aligned with those standards than their counterparts in other states. On a number of indicators, teachers scored higher than their peers in any other state.
