How Do READY TO TEACH® (EDI) Lessons Align to Standards?
DataWORKS’ interactive, multimedia READY TO TEACH EDI lessons focus on key elements required by state standards, including (but not limited to):
- a well-designed, thoughtful concept and learning objective;
- rigorous grade-level expository text in every lesson;
- understanding and use of academic vocabulary;
- writing to support answers using text-based evidence and academic vocabulary;
- a demand for higher-level thinking through appropriate higher-order questioning in checking-for-understanding; and
- the use of technology to enhance the overall learning experience.
Lessons break state standards into teachable learning objectives, so teachers can model skills and concepts separately as required by most state standards. The lessons guide teachers how to focus on deep conceptual understanding, build academic vocabulary, and use evidentiary arguments in response to grade-level expository text in every lesson.
How Do READY TO TEACH® Lessons Work?
Teachers can download, click, and teach these multimedia lessons. Teachers save time in lesson prep, can easily guide students through concept and skill, and can hold students’ attention with the projected display, as well as with interactive teaching and engagement.
Questions in the lessons have answers that animate in with the click of a mouse, and teachers can highlight and markup the text with an online tool. DataWORKS is constantly developing new READY TO TEACH lessons written expressly for each state standard in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and more.
