Learn Zillion: A cure for the Common Core blues?

  
  
  

common coreWe know how overwhelming it can be to design a curriculum that not only engages students, but also meets the Common Core Standards. We just came across a site that will help you do both.

LearnZillion is a free web-based learning platform that combines video lessons, assessments, and progress reporting. Every lesson you find on the site is tied to a specific Common Core Standard. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the videos. It turns out that the company has hired a team of 200 teachers from 41 different states to help curate and develop the content. As of now there are over 2,000 Common Core Lessons. Each lesson includes a 3-5 minute "teaching" video and a short “practice” video where students can see if they understand the lesson. 

Are you, for example, a fifth-grade reading teacher? Modify your search by grade and subject and here’s what you’ll find (keep in mind that this is only the first of five other pages of content):

Parents, teachers and students can access everything on Learn Zillion for free. If your school or district is interested in professional development content and analytic options, they can sign up for an enterprise-level plan for a fee.

Fantastic resource! This website definitely helps take some of the tension out of needing to meet common core requirements.
