The 7 Keys to CoreAtlas:
1. Simplifies core learning standards
CoreAtlas' simplified, child-friendly language and comic book art transform a year of over 150 Math, Reading, Writing & Science Learning Standards into easier-to-understand "QUESTS".
With a learning journal, a checklist map-organizer, and over 250 stickers & badges, children know their learning goals and have fun charting progress.
2. Brings best learning practices into your daily routine
CoreAtlas was designed by master teachers and cognitive scientists so you can apply top research-based learning strategies within your existing routine. CoreAtlas simply adds enchantment (and increased effectiveness!) to your year-long learning journey.
Get the most out of your educational time together, inside school & out when you apply what really works!
3. Supports growth mindset
CoreAtlas encourages everyone to see learning as a journey of continual improvement. With the learning journal, students write & draw to explain their thinking, ask questions, and identify challenges to overcome.
Author of Visible Learning Dr. John Hattie observed, “CoreAtlas allows for error, which surely is the essence of all learning”.
4. Sparks conversations
CoreAtlas gives the big picture of school, so young people and their parents & teachers can easily get on the same page with Math, Reading, Writing, and Science goals. With clear text, fun comics, age-appropriate glossaries, and audio / visual supports, students will want (and be able) to talk about what they’re learning.
Now, the question, "What did you learn in school today?" will spark a great conversation. We guarantee it, or your money back*.
5. Helps students take charge of their learning
CoreAtlas teaches children how to learn, so they can become active, life-long learners. As young people think critically on each QUEST to advance from Not Yet... to On My Way... & to Got It!, they are taking charge.
When students self assess and track their own progress, you can take notes and give feedback - be a helpful guide on their side.
6. Makes space for personal interests
Children want to learn more than just reading, writing, math, & science - every student has unique desires and goals. In the CoreAtlas Learning Journal and on the Map, students can set and monitor progress toward their own personal learning Quests.
Whether it's learning how to swim, speak a second language, or make new friends, CoreAtlas helps make learning personal.
7. Offers a digital balance
Screentime or downtime? Electrons or paper? With CoreAtlas, you choose which fits your needs & budget. Get CoreAtlas as a web app, a huggable print product, or both for a blended learning experience.
Online, you'll get a secure portal for notes, feedback and giving encouragement just in time. Offline CoreAtlas print maps and learning journals are beautifully designed, leaving room for coloring, imagination, and sticker bliss.
