THE TEACHING METHOD OF THE MCDOUGAL LITTELL CURRICULUM.

TEACHING LANGUAGE ARTS

McDougal develops educational tools to meet the challenges of reaching and teaching students in today's language arts classroom. With a large curriculum ranging from literature programs to grammar workbooks to intervention resources, McDougal Language Arts combines the educational research with real-life teacher expertise to offer you flexible, comprehensive, and effective English/Language Arts education tools to apply the principle :Provide the path; inspire the journey.

TEACHING MATH:

We all agree that students learn best when they are involved in the learning process. Research confirms what we know from our professional experiences — that discovery-based learning helps close the achievement gap. Discovery-based learning is much more than occasionally using a few manipulatives or playing a review game in class. It is a commitment to changing the way we think about teaching and the way we assess our students.

TEACHING SCIENCE:


Cutting-edge technology combined with solid science content that provides classrooms of the 21st century with motivating and engaging science resources that take learning to the next level.

From textbooks to virtual labs, and ebooks to differentiated instruction resources, our science books meet the needs of all educators and prepares all levels of students to achieve science literacy.
