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.Try Two of Our Text Studies In Your Common Core Curriculum >>
How A Text Study Works
During a separate class period, educators can visit our Reading Checkpoints. These activities make perfect assessment prep
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.
Core Clicks comes with Digital Locker technology exclusively for teachers. Inside their digital locker, educators are able to manage, assign, and score student work. In addition, they’ll be able to
generate reports for groups, classes, or individuals.
As long as it’s connected to the Internet, you can use it with Core Clicks!* Explore our amazing Text Studies on any tablet, smartphone, interactive whiteboard, laptop, or desktop computer. Whether your school is PC or Macintosh, Core Clicks is ready to go right out of the box. That means your school doesn’t have to invest in any new hardware to get the most out of this powerful Common Core program.
