Our Learning Team of expert teachers has written everything you need to teach your new subject assignments effectively. The materials work with any text (where necessary) that you choose.
These teacher-authors are dedicated to helping educators get their students to "the teaching point" where learning begins.
We serve thousands of schools in all 50 U.S. states and over 75 countries. How can we serve you?
Are you facing these challenges?
- A need to improve student achievement
- Teacher hiring and retention concerns
- New subject assignment(s) for the novice teacher? (See Video)
- An unavoidable out-of-field assignment
- Second-career teachers with significant content knowledge, who are new to teaching
- Teachers with too many classroom preps
These circumstances are a fact of life in most school districts. They can have a negative impact on student performance when inadequate pacing means required content is not covered. Teachers with new subject assignments or too many preps may struggle preparing lesson plans and activities, adding to an already stressful workload.
COMPLETE COURSE INSTRUCTIONAL SUPPORT MATERIALS
Expert Systems for Teachers(TM) series of course materials are comprehensive support systems for out-of-field, new and overworked teachers. Each set of subject-specific instructional support materials includes:

Students: Decades of research shows that a better prepared teacher leads to improved student achievement.
Policymakers looking for 1) solutions to the unequal distribution of effective teachers; 2) sustained professional development programs; 2) paths to certifying teachers as highly-qualified; 3) reduced teacher turnover; and 4) less costly methods in the recruitment and retention of teachers.
Teachers with unavoidable out-of-field teaching assignments feel more confident and cover required course content more completely. Easy-to-use pacing guides ensure full coverage of required state and/or national content standards. Detailed daily lesson plans and instructional support materials better prepare teachers leading to improved student achievement.
New teachers may easily incorporate the teacher-tested labs, activities, projects and assessments into their daily instruction. Editable class notes (in PowerPoint or as overhead masters) are ready on the first day of class.
Second-career teachers are guided by subject-specific teaching strategies and classroom management tips in daily lesson plans. Comprehensive assessment systems ensure effective monitoring of student progress.
Experienced teachers with new assignments will find their classroom prep time reduced using the easy-to-use pacing guide, standard alignments, lesson plans, assessments, class notes and student lab or activity book and aid in their success immensely.
Principals and Superintendents searching for ways to support teachers leading to improved student achievement, graduation rates, college and workforce readiness.

Sites for Teachers
“Better teachers are more likely to result in higher achievement” So said Bill Gates while speaking at the National Conference of State Legislatures (Philadelphia, July 22, 2009).
We agree, and it is much less costly to help better prepare a teacher than recruit more teachers. Let us help you save substantially on recruitment, development and retention of teachers while seeking to improved student achievement, graduation rates, and college or workforce readiness.
