We are hitting the road — and listening to teachers!

0

High-quality learning resources cannot be developed in a vacuum. From our beginnings over 15 years ago, SAS Curriculum Pathways has been informed and influenced by our interaction with educators. We spend countless days each year working with and listening to teachers around the country. And our curriculum specialists attend and present at conferences, both regionally and nationally.

Next week, our social studies and Spanish curriculum specialists will represent SAS Curriculum Pathways at their national conferences. Molly Farrow is presenting a geography session at the NCSS Annual Conference (National Council for the Social Studies) in St. Louis, and Mimi Stapleton is at the ACTFL Annual Convention (American Council on The Teaching of Foreign Languages) in Orlando working with the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation.

Some of our most popular resources resulted from our conversations with teachers at conferences. The original idea for Writing Reviser, now part of the Writing Navigator series, came from English teachers who challenged us to develop a process that would help students revise their initial rough drafts. And talks with social studies teachers led directly to several of our most utilized resources in economics and civics.

So if you see Mimi or Molly next week or, better yet, attend a session, make sure to say hi! They'd love to hear what you need in your classroom. You never know where your ideas might lead!
