    Do any of your schools utilize this program? If so, what are your thoughts?

    I used it at a previous school. I think it has some good aspects, but, overall, I was not a fan.

    What grade did you teach when you used it? What didn't you like about it? Thanks for your help!

    I was a special education coteacher in a fifth grade inclusion class. I liked how it integrated literacy and social studies content, but it felt too prescriptive and didn’t leave much room for tailoring it to students’ interests or local topics. It also didn’t allow much time or opportunity for small group literacy instruction.
