Teaching Guides

Teaching at grades K-5 is both a science and an art. Educators must teach literacy skills and content with best practices, while also focusing on each student’s individual needs. They are challenged to monitor students working independently while also conducting small group instruction. And they must focus on providing differentiated support with a rather complicated text. 

With increased attention to rigor, requirements, and personalized instruction, it can be a challenge to make sure all students are receiving instruction that is just right. Explore Capstone’s Teaching Guides for some excellent Professional Development resources.
