Curriculum

May , 2007

Writing
MY Access! Home Edition (above) picks up where the classroom version leaves off, so kids can hone their writing skills outside the class. On top of providing instant feedback on their writing, the program provides helpful lessons on organizing a future wordsmith’s thoughts and putting them on paper.

Science
Why should K–8 teachers draw weather maps or electrical diagrams on the board when they can use AccuWeather’s science curriculum to help with a variety of lesson plans? The topics range from anatomy and botany to geology and motion, and each is tuned to many state-curriculum standards. Each includes complete activity guides. A trial of the service is available. http://science.accuweather.com; 215-540-5681

Reading
Crick Software’s ClozePro can help any class improve its reading skills and vocabulary with activities that range from picture matching to parsing complex passages. Teachers can track student progress through a series of scripted activities supplied by Crick or created by the teacher.
