The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is placing more emphasis on benchmark assessments than ever before.
Our new video lessons will fit into your arsenal of teaching tools. They follow the guidelines of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), support multiple learning modalities, and reflect best instructional practices. There are 72 new math and ELA video lessons attached to topics across grades 3, 4, and 5 in our Common Core content, as well as in our content built specifically for Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and California and many other states. Each lesson includes two videos: one that focuses on instruction and one that provides guided practice. The videos themselves are also available in the Teacher Toolkit for all users, regardless of the state you teach in.

At the core of what we do is a set of guiding practices and principles that lay the foundation for success.
