Does your district want to adopt a high school ELA product that allows students to choose the texts they read? Take a look at Learning List’s reviews of McGraw-Hill’s StudySync.
McGraw-Hill’s StudySync is a comprehensive literacy program that supports English language arts instruction for grades 6 -12. Content is available in print and digital formats. Learning List recently reviewed the material for English I-IV. The program focuses on developing students’ reading, writing, listening, and speaking abilities while making connections outside the classroom.
StudySync organizes student learning in thematically based units. Essential questions and a brief overview of the theme engage students at the beginning of each unit by connecting to students’ lives. The flexibility of the unit design in this material makes it well suited to support a variety of instructional models, including workshop and Gradual Release of Responsibility.
Learning List’s reviewers noted that a distinguishing feature of this material is the focus on students making choices about their learning. Another benefit is that all resources are easily accessible at point-of-use from the teacher or student eBooks. Unlike in many materials, in this product, teachers and students are not required to exit the core content to access resources.
