At Pearson, we believe in always learning. Because, the more you learn, the more likely you are to succeed. Whether you’re looking to learn more about the Common Core State Standards, ELL strategies, or 21st Century skills, Pearson will always have information on the topics that matter most to you and your students. No matter what changes and challenges you may come across in your classroom, we’ll be there to help you learn how to become the best educator you can possibly be.

 

Common Core State Standards

Pearson offers complete and cohesive support to help you implement the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Professional development opportunities, aligned content, assessment, and school services are available to familiarize you with the standards and help you learn about key requirements. Pearson promises to be with you throughout the transition period—and beyond.

 

 

Grants and Funding

The Pearson Grants and Funding web site offers useful links to help identify available funds and resources for grant applicants applying for Pearson programs. Your Pearson sales partner can help you to create customized grant and funding eligible curricula and professional development plans for your school or district.

 

 

Response to Intervention (RTI)

RTI is an ongoing instructional process of using assessments to inform instruction that leads to improved student performance. Pearson's Response to Intervention solution provides a continuum of accelerated intervention strategies that assess, instruct, and monitor at every level for the best possible outcome. Unlike other modular solutions, Pearson's combination of continual progress monitoring and instruction ensure long-term, sustained results.

 

21st Century Learners (P21)

Pearson encourages 21st century learning by infusing the core subjects and themes throughout our programs—Life and Career Skills, Learning and Innovation Skills, and Information, Media, and Technology Skills. The ultimate goal—to ensure that every child is prepared for the 21st century with skills like critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, innovation and global competence.

 

 

Understanding by Design® Framework

The Understanding by Design® framework (UbD® framework) for curriculum, assessment, and learning is a groundbreaking but commonsense approach to building curriculum, instruction, and assessment. Through an exclusive partnership with Grant Wiggins, coauthor with Jay McTighe of Understanding by Design (ASCD 2008) 2nd Ed, Pearson has made a commitment to integrate the UbD™ framework into all new programs.
