There are hundreds of ELA, math, and science options currently available for selection. You can find a sortable, filterable list in our Reports Section to see all of the options, including materials from large publishers to small publishers to open education resources.
Next, learn more about a program’s alignment to college- and career-ready standards. Do the materials meet, partially meet, or not meet expectations for alignment? By focusing on alignment first, you learn how strong the content is and where you need to fill gaps to make sure the materials are great options for your students.
From there, decide which programs you want to investigate more deeply as a match for your local priorities.
With a manageable number of titles in your hands, it’s time to explore each program in depth. As you examine the programs, refer back to the reviews which provide detailed evidence about their strengths in addition to alignment.
Applying your instructional vision, expertise, and knowledge of your community to this short list of quality curriculum will let you conduct even deeper analyses and pick the best program for your students.
You can find our recommendations for how to use these reviews in your process on our About Adoption page.
