New Product Review: Edmentum’s Texas English 6-8

Does your district need instructional materials to support middle school students who have selected home learning? Take a look at Learning List’s reviews of Edmentum’s Texas English 6-8.

Edmentum’s Texas English 6-8 provides a fully digital, comprehensive program for middle school English Language Arts.  The material provides a variety of activities to support students’ development of reading and writing skills. The goal of the program is to provide rigorous, relevant instruction through interactive, media-rich content.  

The material sequences instruction so that it becomes increasingly complex and builds on students’ prior knowledge. Units begin with a discussion topic and questions designed to encourage students to begin connecting the concepts in the unit with information they already know.

While students complete the course individually, the design of the LMS and the way the instruction is provided enables middle school teachers to customize instruction to meet individual students needs. Additionally, the platform provides numerous tools to help teachers monitor student progress, and pre- and post-tests for each unit measure student learning of the targeted skills.
