As part of our initiative to provide teachers affordable, quality materials, we need reviews to gain feedback on the curriculum, spread the word, and improve future products.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 01, 2014
Outliers Publishing announced today that reviews are needed for the newly developed close reading curriculum for sixth through eight grade teachers, based on the book Ingredients of Young Outliers: Achieving Your Most Amazing Future by Dr. John Shufeldt. Outliers Publishing is calling for middle school English and language arts teachers to provide a review of the materials, in exchange for a free copy of a week’s worth of curriculum. The curriculum created for middle school educators was created using student leadership content from the book for educational activities that utilize the Common Core standards with lesson plans, close reading exercises, warm ups, homework and exit tickets.
While the 7-day lesson plans are available for purchase to the public online through Teachers pay Teachers for $2.99, reviewers will be given a free copy of their chosen lessons via email in exchange for their honest review of the material. Teachers interested in reviewing the curriculum should visit the Outlier Series store on TeachersPayTeachers.com here http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Outlier-Series-Lesson-Plans to view various curriculum offerings, and email apacion(AT)ingredientsofoutliers.com to obtain a free copy of their chosen product.
“I am excited to provide affordable and engaging curriculum developed by an incredibly talented and experienced educator. As part of our initiative to provide teachers affordable, quality materials, we need reviews to gain feedback on the curriculum, spread the word, and improve future products,” said book author John Shufeldt.
Ingredients of Young Outliers: Achieving Your Most Amazing Future has already had great success and has proven to be compelling material in schools across AZ where it was launched in local schools.
“As a teacher, I am constantly searching for ideas that adhere to the latest Common Core standards, this takes the stress out of prep work and provides educators with thought provoking close readings and great activities that our Arizona students have loved. But we need help getting the word out to other areas, schools and student leadership groups,” said Tiffany Panessa, curriculum developer and educational consultant.
The reviews will be completed on the product pages on the Outlier Series website, and can be anonymous. Visit here for the first week's curriculum page as an example http://www.ingredientsofoutliers.com/product/common-core-curriculum-ingredients-young-outliers-chapter-1-ego/.
