More about Improved Products

We’re boosting cross-subject integration.

We always had it, but now we’re adding even more. What does that term mean?

It means connecting and reinforcing concepts between subjects. For instance, what a 1st grader learns in history doesn’t just show up in history.

For example, you teach about Abraham Lincoln in history, and you teach basic grammar skills in language. Then those two come together in creative writing, where students write their own story about Abraham Lincoln’s life.

Why does this matter? Children learn best when they can use what they’re learning. (Plus, it makes learning more fun! There’s more feeling of discovery. . . more room for creativity. . . and more sense of accomplishment.)

You’ll already see more cross-subject integration in 1st grade, and we’ll be continuing to add more in each grade.

We’re enhancing our spiral approach.

With Abeka’s spiral approach, you don’t just teach something once. You teach age-appropriate concepts and build from the known to the unknown. You review content within each grade, then again from one grade to the next.

Why? It’s easy to forget something if it’s never reviewed. Or, put another way, “If you don’t use it, you lose it!”

When students learn concepts, review those concepts, then go to more difficult ones, they’re better able to learn—without frustration or learning gaps.

We’ve always used the spiral approach, but now we’re making it better. How? We’ve created a refined process for mapping curriculum.

In other words, we’re even more certain that every concept is taught, reviewed during the year, then reviewed the next year. Every year, you can count on review to build a bridge from what students have learned to what they’re about to learn.
