I HAVE BEEN WAITING TO SHARE THIS WITH YOU!

I have something incredibly exciting to share with you this week.  This is one of those things that you will just not believe is available to you for FREE!  Three words......IN-CRED-IBLE!

Let me show you SAS Curriculum Pathways.

SAS Curriculum Pathways


SAS Curriculum Pathways provides interactive, state and Common Core standards-based resources for grades 6 through 12 in English language arts, science, social studies, math, and Spanish, all of which will be available at no cost.
SAS Curriculum Pathways features more than 200 interactive tools, 200 inquiries, 600 Web lessons, and 70 audio tutorials. It focuses on active learning through doing, seeing, and listening and is designed to engage higher-order thinking skills. The resources can also be differentiated to meet the individual needs of each student.

This is so exciting that you HAVE to experience it for yourself...........

I have set up a generic account and I want you to take some time to look at these activities.  You will need to log in with the following.....

username: pharesr
password: cougars

This site runs heavily on JAVA...before going on you need to look at the upper right corner for "System Check."   Click and run the check, if you se a red X your system needs updated.  Just click on the X and your computer will update for you.

Here are my top suggestions, however I know once you get in there and see one, you will be hooked and will want to see them all.

ELA:
Punctuation Rules

Discovering African American Writers

Strategies for Reading Short Stories

AND DO NOT MISS THE WRITING REVISER   AND THE WRITING DRAFTER

MATH: 

Exploring Graphs of Quadratic Inequalities

Graphing on a Coordinate Plane


Science:

Social Studies:

Spanish: 

I know by now you are as excited as I am.....if you are planning on using these with your class,
let me know so I can help you make sure the system updates are all ready to go.   

IT'S A GREAT TIME TO BE A COUGAR!

  1. Hi Robin,

    Thanks for your great post about SAS Curriculum Pathways! We do love that our more than 1,200 resources for K-12 are available for free. We are hard at work making new resources and rewriting existing ones in HTML5. Writing Planner, Writing Drafter, and Writing Reviser are a few of the first ones that work across platforms without plugins.

    Thanks for passing your username and password along to encourage others to try it out. We'd love for your readers to create their own free account (including students). This way they can take advantage of some of the personalization features, like saving your writing in the Writing Navigator suite.

    Educator and student feedback is the number one source for new features and fixes. Let us know how we can make existing resources better and what new ones would be most helpful. We look forward to working with educators as we expand our repository of free resources.

    One last thought... our online Professional Development is also available at no cost! This is a great resource for teachers looking to integrate technology in the classroom.

    Thanks a lot and let us know how we can help.
