The Perfect Complement to Your Common Core Curriculum

Text Studies are the cornerstone of Core Clicks. The program features 108 of these educational units, requiring approximately four class periods each. Text Studies guide students and educators through THREE READS of an engaging text with a focus on a specific Common Core skill. Each time students read the text they will be presented with different multimedia features and embedded performances tasks designed to reinforce the skill.

How Assessment Prep Works

exercises. Students must apply the Common Core skills they’ve learned from the Text Studies on a new and unfamiliar text. This is the exact same type of analysis they will be required to do on the PARCC and Smarter Balanced assessments.
