[Source: Triumph Learning]

Triumph Learning’s Common Core Performance Coach provides supplemental instructional materials for mathematics and English language arts and reading instruction in grades 3-8. Performance Coach materials are available in print format and are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Resources include practice questions formatted to reflect the CCSS-based standardized exams (i.e., PARCC, Smarter Balanced). Learning List has recently published alignment reports and editorial reviews for these materials in grades 3-8.

Common Core Performance Coach: English Language Arts organizes instruction in four strands: (1) Working with Literature, (2) Working with Informational Texts, (3) Writing, and (4) Listening. Common Core Performance Coach: Mathematics is organized in terms of the CCSS Mathematics domains for each grade level. Content in both products is structured using the Gradual Release of Responsibility (GRR) instructional model which gradually shifts responsibility for learning from the teacher to students. To achieve this goal, lessons are presented in three parts:

  1. Getting the Idea: Teachers introduce new concepts, model new skills, provide examples, and make connections to prior learning.
  2. Coached Example: Teachers coach students as they practice new skills and work with peers.
  3. Lesson Practice: Students practice new skills independently.

The Performance Coach Teacher Guide provides teachers with a detailed pacing guide for the full instructional year that references additional resources to support instruction. Guides provide correlations to the CCSS and background information to help teachers transition to the new standards and assessments. Guides include strategies for working with English language learners, rubrics to guide the evaluation of student writing, and comprehensive lesson plans.

New Reviews: Triumph Learning’s Beyond the TEKS ELA & Reading

[Source: Triumph Learning]

[Source: Triumph Learning]

Triumph Learning supports instruction of Texas students in grades 3-8 with its TEKS-focused supplemental products in mathematics and English language arts and reading (ELAR). Beyond the TEKS English Language Arts and Reading provides genre-specific instruction focused on developing students’ reading and writing skills, and Texas Coach TEKS Edition supports preparations for STAAR math tests. Instruction in both products is student-centered and focuses on developing students’ ownership of their learning processes.

Instruction in Beyond the TEKS is structured in three parts: (1) Listen and Learn, (2) Share and Learn, and (3) Read on Your Own. During Listen and Learn, teachers introduce and model new skills in whole group instruction. In Share and Learn activities, students work in small groups to practice new skills, and in Read on Your Own, students independently read and analyze a leveled reading passage. Leveled passages are available for students reading below, at, and above grade level. Passages include the same comprehension questions so that students have the same opportunity to develop higher order thinking skills irrespective of their reading level.

Texas Coach TEKS Edition provides content in four chapters. Each chapter addresses one of the four STAAR Reporting Categories: (1) Numerical Representations and Relationships, (2) Computations and Algebraic Relationships, (3) Geometry and Measurement, (4) Data Analysis and Personal Financial Literacy. Similar to Beyond the TEKS, Texas Coach structures lessons in three parts (1) Getting the Idea, (2) Coached Example, and (3) Lesson Practice. Student editions are written in simple language with an uncluttered page layout that allows students to follow the step-by-step guidance and easily identify solutions. Each chapter ends with a set of review questions that reflect the types of questions students will see on STAAR exams.
