Curriculum Mapping & Alignment

You don't have to adjust your scope and sequence to fit Speak Agent. We adjust to fit yours!
Customizable academic language curriculum

We Tailor Our Program to You—Because It Works

It is established learning science that the efficacy of digital instruction depends upon close alignment to the curriculum (Cassady, Smith, & Thomas, 2018). Academic language learning requires repeated exposure through oral and written resources in multiple contexts mapped to the classroom curriculum (Peregoy & Boyle, 2013). And that close mapping is exactly what you get with Speak Agent. Our curriculum mapping & alignment service is both affordable and effective. Other leading programs cannot readily fit your scope, sequence, and pacing. This misalignment reduces efficacy and increases teacher burden. So say goodbye to one-size-fits-all!

It's a Cinch to Implement

With the mapping & alignment service, Speak Agent takes care of all of the heavy lifting in three easy steps:
  1. Share your curriculum documents with us, as relevant to the program(s) you have purchased. We simply need the names of each unit, the standards covered, and your pacing calendar.
  2. Next, Speak Agent populates your account with all the lesson sets appropriate for your implementation. We name and sequence our digital lessons to match your curriculum. For middle grades, we can configure it to have an intervention track for beginner English Learners and struggling readers. See this knowledge base article for how we explain this to classroom teachers.
  3. With this service you may elect to have Speak Agent automate assignments for each course or class section. We configure your account so that the right lesson appears on student dashboards at the right time, in accordance with your curriculum pacing. Teachers can override the automation, where necessary. Alternatively, you can empower teachers to search your customized library of lessons and assign them as they see fit. This often works best for ESL/ESOL implementations.

Premium Customization Option

Looking for highly customized content? Speak Agent's add-on customization service creates content to fit the exact concepts, learning objectives, classroom activities, or other resources that you specify.
