    Anyone out there using this program?

    My district has adopted it for next year and I've heard mixed reviews from the teachers at my site who have piloted it.

    Not loving it.


    There are enough errors in teachers editions to make me scream.

    We currently use it now and it's horrible. Next year we will be adopting another curriculum.

    Learn Zillion is amazing and even the kids love it, plus it's FREE!

    I have little experience with it, but I liked what I saw of it more than Envision. However, that may change if I had more experience with both. As with anything, it has to be supplemented.

    I'm not a fan, but I've only briefly glanced through certain lessons. Very dry and boring. Drill and kill.
    Check out Engage NY, it's free online. I feel like you could blend the two and come out with something pretty decent.

    I like it! From the computerized assessments and assignments, built in RTI, instructional videos, virtual manipulatives and games...It's a pretty robust program.

    We used it at my old school. It had only been adopted for 1 year before I left, so I feel like I didn't get to give it a fair chance.

    I think it will depend on how rigid your district is with it. If you have to follow it page for page, it can be boring. But if you can supplement, and be flexible, I think it has good options and I liked the sequencing (in sixth grade).
