Teacher Created Materials once again reaped the rewards of developing high-quality resources designed specifically for the educational market by winning five of AEP’s highly coveted Distinguished Achievement Award (DAA) at the annual event held on June 8, 2011.
“Receiving these awards is unquestionably a great testament to our ongoing commitment to teachers. We strive continuously to raise the bar by developing successful classroom resources that teachers want and need,” commented TCM’s President, Corinne Burton.
A dual award winner Building Fluency through Reader's Theater: American Tall Tales and Legends took home one Distinguished Achievement Award for Curriculum, Reading and Language Arts K-5 and another for Social Studies K–5. Developed for grades PreK–12, Building Fluency through Reader's Theater is a standards-based fluency series that motivates students with fun, repeated, and purposeful reading practice. The award-winning kit features scripts that function as important differentiated instruction tools, effectively bridging the gap between word recognition and comprehension while also reinforcing social studies content.
Building Fluency through Reader’s Theater: William Shakespeare was also honored with the DAA award for Curriculum, Special Education and Intervention. This classroom resource, based on classic Shakespeare plays, was developed to enrich existing Special Education curriculum readily and easily and fit in perfectly with intervention programs. The components in this resource are presented in various formats, including print, digital, and audio, for the leveled scripts, songs, and Shakespearian sonnets.
Winning the category for Curriculum, Science 6-8, the Discovering Science through Inquiry: Ecology and the Environment kit effectively spurs student investigation and advances understanding of scientific concepts through hands-on activities and inquiry-based exploration. Exploring History through Primary Sources: United States Foreign Policy won for Curriculum, Social Studies 9-12. Featuring authentically recreated primary sources and photograph cards to enhance social studies curriculum, this resource includes letters and memos by political leaders, historically significant newspaper excerpts, and declassified documents as well as paintings, maps, and cartoons which support document-based assessment and higher order thinking skills.
