WASHINGTON, June 9, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The nonprofit EdReports.org has awarded Wit & Wisdom™, the new English Language Arts curriculum from the nonprofit Great Minds®, near-perfect scores.
EdReports.org, which conducts independent, evidence-based curriculum reviews, looked at grades 3-8 in its review of Wit & Wisdom and awarded the program perfect scores including the highest scores for "Text Quality" of all reviewed materials.
The findings mirror the exceptional scores awarded in an earlier review by EdReports.org to Great Minds' Eureka Math™ curriculum, making Great Minds the only curriculum provider with exemplary reviews in both subjects.
EdReports.org reviews are crafted by a team of expert educators from across the country who assess how each educational program addresses new, college- and career-ready learning standards and supports knowledge building and subject-area mastery.
"Wit & Wisdom and Eureka Math share the same DNA," explains Great Minds founder and Executive Director Lynne Munson. "Both curricula are written by teachers with unhesitatingly high expectations for all students, and both provide educators with rich and effective tools to meet those goals. Teachers who use our materials tell us they change their practice forever."
