Cheyenne, Wyoming (PRWEB) April 02, 2014
The Common Core Initiative was developed to help schools across the country raise their standards and better prepare students for success in the professional world and in college. Since July 2012, educators across Wyoming are working to find ways to implement these changes in their school districts and classrooms. To support these changes in Wyoming education, Benchmark Universe has worked to develop supplemental materials that will help teachers apply the new curriculum without draining their budgets.
Benchmark Universe offers schools and teachers a unique combination of budget friendly products and services. The products developed include research based resources that have proven results in a K-8 educational environment. The Benchmark Universe texts for literacy instruction are leveled and have been developed with the understanding that Common Core in Wyoming requires a range of skill levels per grade. Benchmark also offers differentiated instruction for all learners that range from students with learning disabilities or struggling readers to those who test on level or are gifted. There are also materials for students still mastering English as a second language. Perhaps for Wyoming educators coming to grips with the Common Core in the state, Benchmark Universe provides teacher guides that offer explicit instruction that walk the education professionals through the lessons and activities.
According to Scott Callender, a representative for Benchmark Education in the State, "Benchmark Universe is a great resource for teachers and schools that just don't have the budget for a major change in their literacy curriculum right now. It is especially useful for schools and classrooms that are trying to achieve district or state standards but are finding it difficult with the materials and resources they had before the Common Core was introduced. I encourage all interested teachers and schools to sign up for the Benchmark Universe free trial, it will provide a comprehensive insight into the materials and resources available."
In addition to providing learning resources and products, Benchmark Universe also offers over 600 interactive white board sets, 1,700 talking e-books, and concepts and vocabulary building exercises to help with content comprehension. There are even online assessments to ensure that students are mastering the material. For schools throughout Wyoming who are looking for ways to implement the new Common Core standards but lack the funds for all new materials, these on-line tools and resources are available for considerably less than hard copy materials. Benchmark Universe’s dedication to providing students throughout the state with the highest quality education resources has led them to develop this low cost alternative to traditional curriculum supplements.
Those interested in learning more about helping their schools and classrooms become Common Core compliant without draining the budget should contact Benchmark Universe for more information. They are happy to help educators determine what might help their own classrooms.
Benchmark Universe was founded to help teachers and educators struggling to provide their classrooms of diverse learners with the materials they need to master their educational skills. As schools across the state of Wyoming struggle to implement the Common Core curriculum changes while remaining on budget, the resources provided by the company offer a low cost way to achieve proven results for a fraction of the cost.
