Like most everyone else, we’re wondering what learning might look like in the months ahead. In all likelihood, it will look different across the country and around the world. But despite the uncertainty, we are still committed to our mission of equipping teachers with the tools and learning opportunities they need to be able to empower all students to become lifelong readers. We’ve been hard at work developing digital products, recording video content, and creating new resources to support educators as we find our way in this new normal. Here are some of the ways we plan on supporting teachers moving forward.
Daily Lesson Videos
When Covid-19 first started shutting down schools in March, we were quick to respond with expanded curriculum samples and a library of recorded lesson videos on YouTube. Those videos include select weeks from our curriculum and will remain available throughout the 20-21 school year.
In addition, we’re planning to release a professionally filmed library of all of our lessons as taught by our literacy specialists. Lessons will include all 8 phonemic awareness skills. The first 12 weeks of our English curriculum, as well as the Spanish Kindergarten curricula, will be available in August for $7.99 per teacher per month, or $79.99 per teacher per year. We will continue to record and release the remaining lesson videos throughout the year.
Later this summer we’ll be releasing a new curricula for phonemic awareness intervention entitled “Bridge the Gap”. Alisa and Marjorie have been working hard to make this resource a reality, and we can’t wait to share it with you!
It has been encouraging to see how administrators, teachers, and parents have come together during the past several months to get creative and deliver remote learning to students. And while it has been far from easy, and not the ideal we hope for when we think about our children’s education, we push forward and strive to do the best we can with what we’ve been given in order that our students might be prepared to face the ever changing world in front of them.
From all of us here at Heggerty, we want to wish you the best as you prepare your learning plans in person, remote, or otherwise and we invite your questions, comments, and suggestions as we learn and adapt together.
