The teachers find Rapid Resources easy to use and a real aide in remediation of their students.
Stuart, FL (PRWEB) August 22, 2007
Effective teaching is often about individual attention but teachers rarely have the time to devote their efforts to one student at a time. Today, Rapid Resources(R) -- a new web-based ILP (Individualized Learning Plan) resource was released that will help teachers meet their students' unique learning needs without complicated assessments and stacks of teaching resources.
Veteran educational software developer, Bill Tudor, created Rapid Resources (http://www.rapidresources.com) to be a teacher-centered web tool that creates individualized learning plans - either accelerated or remediated - that contain exercises and tutorials for skills ranging from pre-kindergarten to high school exit exams. There are over 500 unique exercises in mathematics, language arts, reading and science that are proven to help students catch-up, excel, or stay on target with their peers by focusing on building-block skills.
"An Individualized Learning Plan is an absolute priority for a struggling student to achieve success," said Dr. Stephen McCammon, Superintendent of Fife School District in Tacoma, Wash. "The teachers find Rapid Resources easy to use and a real aide in remediation of their students."
Rapid Resources is unique because it is easy to use, affordable and it is a total solution for differentiating instruction without complicated assessments and hoards of different teaching materials and programs. Rapid Resources focuses on the foundation or "building-block" skills that are essential to building a solid education. Teachers use simple assessment questions to determine if a student has or has not mastered a foundation skill and from these results, an ILP is created along with the tutorials and exercises needed for a teacher, parent, or aide to work through a complete, customized lesson.
"Many teachers intuitively know which foundation skills their students are missing but finding the proper remediation activities can be a complex task," said Bill Tudor, founder of the International Learning Corporation and creator of Rapid Resources. "Rapid Resources was designed to give teachers an easy way to generate an ILP and get students back on track but we haven't overlooked those students who need a challenge. Rapid Resources includes accelerated activities as well, also accessible with a simple click."
Rapid Resources activities are original content, developed by classroom teachers, correlated to state standards and available in Spanish and English. A tour of the program is available at http://www.rapidresources.com and teachers may try the program risk-free for thirty (30) days.
