Online Professional Learning–At No Cost!


SAS Curriculum Pathways - English Language Arts

Keeping up with the pace of technology innovation–while simultaneously planning resource integration in an online, blended, or traditional classroom–is really more than a full-time job. So why not earn renewal credits while you do it?

Through our online professional-development course offerings, participants learn how SAS® Curriculum Pathways®  helps educators achieve academic goals by:

  • Providing resources built the way people learn
  • Addressing higher-order learning objectives
  • Enabling differentiated instruction
  • Integrating real world skills with core subjects
"This is a great course and starts at the bare bones to help create scaffolding for teachers who may still be unfamiliar with the program." — NC social studies teacher

All of our current courses are provided at no-cost. They are also asynchronous: you can complete assignments over time, as you have time. And while some require classroom technology integration, the Building Unit Plans with SAS Curriculum Pathways course can be completed outside the constraints of your school calendar.

All three courses guide and support teachers as they learn about SAS Curriculum Pathways resources and integrate them into existing curricula. And because our online resources cover the K-12 curriculum– including English language arts, math, reading, science, social studies, and Spanish–there's a course option for almost any teacher.

Here’s a quick overview of the current options.
