Pearson Education Inc. a curriculum supplier to school districts across the nation, proudly presents Pearson Homeschool, created to help you develop a rich love of learning in your home.
Pearson offered four elements of their curriculum to reviewers on the TOS Homeschool Crew. Each family had the opportunity to review one of the four products at a grade level that would be the best fit for their family.
myWorld Social Studies reviewed grades 3-6
myWorld Social Studies uses Essential Questions help students see the “big ideas” they’re learning about, and activate prior knowledge in social studies. These questions engage students in an active discussion of what they already know about the topic, but also encourage them to think further.
Scott Foresman’s myWorld Social Studies offers a variety of ways for your child to think critically about key concepts so they actively experience the world they live in and develop a true understanding of the subject.
Students don’t simply memorize facts, dates, and places. They take what they’ve learned and transfer that knowledge to new content, situations, ideas, and to their own lives. The goal is to help your students become a successful learner who will remember not only what they have been taught, but how to learn more!
Scott Foresman’s myWorld Social Studies will be priced at $69.99 for their Homeschool Bundle for the 2012-13 school year. Please visit Pearson Homeschool’s website for individual pricing details.
