Carson-Dellosa received EDDIE awards for its Common Core aligned Learning Spot™ Lessons on math combinations and electricity for elementary school grades. The EDDIEs are given by ComputED Gazette as part of its 17th Annual Education Software Review Awards. Winners were selected from hundreds of software titles submitted by publishers worldwide.
Judy L. Harris, CEO of Carson-Dellosa, said that the awards are a reflection of the company’s commitment to providing teachers with high-quality supplemental content in science, math and other core subjects.
“Teachers as well as business and government leaders recognize that a focus on science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, is critical to the future success of our country,” Harris said. “These lessons help teachers fully utilize their classroom technology and are aligned with the more rigorous Common Core State Standards.”
Common Core State Standards is a state-led effort to create rigorous, clear and consistent academic standards. In all, 45 states, the District of Columbia, and three U.S. territories have adopted Common Core Standards.
With over 80 titles to choose from, Carson-Dellosa’s Learning Spot™ Lessons help students grasp concepts through curriculum units for interactive whiteboards, Mac and PC. Designed to save busy teachers time, each comprehensive unit contains 3 full lessons, lesson plans, printable pages, teacher notes, extension activities, classroom management tools, state standards correlations, multilingual instructions and more.
