People often ask what is the definition of “instructional material.” While some states define the term, Learning List reviews comprehensive and supplemental preK-12 instructional content delivered in multiple formats, including: print, DVDs and online materials.
Though we’ve adopted an expansive definition of “instructional material, ” you won’t find this video reviewed on LearningList.com even though it is one of the more popular grammar lessons with over 14 million views. However, we thought we’d just share it to ease your transition back into the school year.
Learning List is currently reviewing the social studies and high school math materials that have been submitted for state adoption in Texas and will publish those editorial reviews when school begins. We will post the state’s alignment reports for those materials as soon as TEA releases them, likely in early December.
We are also reviewing non-adopted and open-education resources in all four core content areas: math, ELA, science and technology applications. If there is an instructional material your school is interested in and you would like an independent evaluation of its alignment to the TEKS or Common Core standards, and an objective assessment of its instructional content and design, request a review now, and we’ll have those for you shortly after school begins.
