The School-to-Home Solution: Middle School covers all core content areas for the reinforcement and generalization of skills in school and at home. For ELA, we’ve included the Early Reading Skills Builder again to reinforce some of the foundational literacy skills that some middle schoolers still lack. Read and Tell is an adapted literature collection, offering a nice balance to the reading skills presented in ERSB. For math, we chose our Teaching to Standards: Math Extension Activity Books in the areas of Algebra and Data Analysis. These provide supplemental and extended practice for units from the Teaching to Standards: Math Curriculum. We’ve also included the Look at Math Student Workbook, which uses heavy illustrations to help students grasp tough concepts like positive and negative numbers, fractions, and algebra. Explore Life Science offers a theme-based approach to the basics of biology. Lastly, the Explore Social Studies gives a nice overview of the five domains of subject – civics, economics, U.S. history, world history, and geography.
School-To-Home Solution: Middle School
Build Continuity Between School and Home Instruction Throughout the School Year
Attainment’s School-to-Home Solution: Middle School builds continuity between school and home instruction throughout the school year. There are two primary components—one Quick Reference Guide to Teacher Support Resources with digital content online to facilitate remote learning and 10 Student Learning Packets, containing consumable workbooks from 6 curricular titles across the core content areas—ERSB, Read and Tell, Teaching to Standards: Math—Algebra and Data Analysis, Look at Math, Explore Life Science, and Explore Social Studies. Along with the Packets, there is a Quick Reference Guide to Home Lessons that will provide a list of components as well as quick steps for parents to get started with lessons with the consumable workbooks. Access to digital, hands-on support will also be provided through the Attainment HUB. The Student Learning Packets could easily be disseminated from your district’s pick-up locations even now during the COVID-19 pandemic and at the start of each school year going forward.
