Program 1

EUREKA MATH IS A PREK-12 CURRICULUM THAT HELPS STUDENTS TO UNDERSTAND MATH DEEPLY AND TO CONNECT IT TO THE REAL WORLD, PREPARING THEM TO SOLVE PROBLEMS THAT THEY HAVEN'T ENCOUNTERED BEFORE. THE TEAM OF TEACHERS AND MATHEMATICIANS BELIEVE THAT IT'S NOT ENOUGH FOR STUDENTS TO MEMORIZE A PROCESS FOR SOLVING A PROBLEM; THEY NEED TO KNOW WHY THAT PROCESS WORKS. EUREKA USES CLEAR MODELS AND PROVEN INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS TO HELP STUDENTS BECOME NOT JUST LITERATE, BUT FLUENT IN MATH. THE CURRICULUM IS AVAILABLE FREE OF CHARGE FOR USE BY ANY EDUCATOR ON OUR WEBSITE, GREATMINDS.ORG.

WIT & WISDOM IS A K-8 HUMANITIES CURRICULUM BASED ON AUTHENTIC TEXTS OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY. STUDENTS USE THESE TEXTS AT EVERY TURN TO LEARN, AND EVENTUALLY MASTER, ESSENTIAL READING, WRITING, SPEAKING, LISTENING, GRAMMAR, AND VOCABULARY SKILLS. INSTEAD OF BASALS, STUDENTS READ BOOKS THEY LOVE IN ORDER TO BUILD KNOWLEDGE OF IMPORTANT TOPICS AND MASTER LITERACY SKILLS. ALL STUDENTS READ AND DISCUSS GRADE-LEVEL TEXTS, WITH SUGGESTIONS FOR SUPPORT INCLUDED AT KEY MOMENTS THROUGHOUT EACH LESSON. GREAT MINDS HAS ALSO DEVELOPED GEODES, A SERIES OF READABLE TEXTS FOR GRADES K-2

PHD SCIENCE IS A PHENOMENON-DRIVEN CURRICULUM. THROUGH AUTHENTIC ANCHOR PHENOMENON, EACH MODULE EXPLORES CORE SCIENCE CONCEPTS TO HELP STUDENTS MAKE SENSE OF THE WORLD AROUND THEM. EVERY LESSON BUILDS ON THE LESSONS BEFORE IT, WEAVING A COHERENT STORYLINE FOR THE MODULE AS STUDENTS DIG DEEP INTO EACH CONCEPT THEY'RE EXPLORING. THROUGH OBSERVATION, QUESTIONING, MODELING, INVESTIGATION, AND EVIDENCE-BASED ARGUMENTATION, STUDENTS BUILD KNOWLEDGE THAT THEY CAN DEMONSTRATE BY APPLYING THEIR UNDERSTANDING IN DIFFERENT CONTEXTS THROUGH SCIENCE OR ENGINEERING CHALLENGES IN EACH MODULE. PHD SCIENCE HELPS MOVE STUDENTS FROM READING ABOUT SCIENCE TO DOING SCIENCE. IN 2019, PHD SCIENCE WAS AVAILABLE FOR GRADES 3-5. DEVELOPMENT FOR GRADES K-2 AND 6-8 WAS ONGOING DURING THE YEAR.
