Using Teacher Resources

Teacher Resources provides offline resources such as supplemental printouts, classroom activities, reteaching lessons, and other print materials to use in a blended learning environment. These offline materials correlate directly with Imagine Language & Literacy curriculum, so you can easily plan lessons or one-on-one intervention sessions around the same actionable skills that your students are practicing. You can also launch individual Imagine Language & Literacy activities directly from Teacher Resources.

 Note

Launching activities from Teacher Resources does not initiate a student's individual sequence, nor does it add data to reports.

Teacher Resources is divided into 2 sections: Literacy and Language. Imagine Language & Literacy activities in each section are grouped by curriculum area, then by actionable skill. Teacher Resources works hand-in-hand with the Activity Explorer: both tools are organized in the same curriculum areas and actionable skills, making it easier to find offline materials that complement Imagine Language & literacy activities.
