In another example, District 11 in Colorado Springs, Colo., saw a need for high school students who were preparing to take their SATs and ACTs, says Leigh Ann Garcia, director of portfolio management for HMH.
Educators there wanted students taking Algebra II to be able to review the topics they had learned in prerequisite courses to ensure they could succeed on the SAT and ACT exams. “Teachers everywhere are teaching Algebra II, but then they have to stop and pull from other areas—a teacher down the hall, the internet—to teach students the review stuff. Now, they don’t have to go searching for the review information,” says Garcia.
Schools can get HMH’s custom curriculum materials in print or online, or both. The materials always include assessment resources and a final review, says Garcia.
