A System Approach

A System Approach

Pearson believes in the power of learning to transform lives and prepare this generation of students for new challenges, opportunities, and a world as promising as their potential. Nowhere is this more important than with English learners, who represent the fastest-growing student population in the United States. Their diverse backgrounds and varying levels of prior formal education have created unique challenges. In addition, the Common Core State Standards have raised the bar once again. The true promise of personalized learning for every student can be achieved through the integration of powerful instructional resources, assessments, and student data that inform instruction, effective school and educator improvement services, and technology platforms.
 
All together. Now.

 

“Pearson products explicitly lays out that they’re common core aligned at grade level so in a way when teachers are implementing it with fidelity and they are implementing the grade-level common core. We know when we’re providing supplemental or additional instruction, when they get back to the classroom, it’s going to be powerful for them…it’s validating for the ESL teacher. It’s really validating for the ESL student.”
– Clint Richards, ELA Specialist

 

“It is important that there is a system in place so nothing gets left out and so students don’t miss out. SIOP was critical in successfully moving ELLs into the general classroom. If there weren’t a system in place then something would be missing. And I don’t think that the support and growth of students’ language would be there if we didn’t have all the different pieces [of the system] in place.”
– Karen Hanford, ELA Administrator
