Using Customized Curriculum To Support Teaching Strategies
Hear how Pinellas County Schools have customized their instructional materials to help improve teaching and student experiences
Educators are looking for high-quality curricula that align to teaching strategies, standards and promote student engagement. When a search for an off-the-shelf book fails, district leaders have to take customization in their own hands.
Customization allows you to create relevant instructional materials that engage students and enhance their learning experiences while enabling teachers to be more effective with their instruction.
“Our goal was to give our hard-working teachers materials that would make their jobs easier and allow them to focus more on teaching and less on administrative tasks.”
-Pam Benton, World Languages Specialist Pinellas County Schools

“Not only is the custom organization of the units more impactful for student achievement, but the strategies used to unpack a text or create a piece of writing have helped our teachers improve their practice.”
“Teachers really like the printed materials. As an added bonus, providing resources in print helped to significantly cut down teachers’ time at the copy machine, allowing them to spend more time focused on what’s important.”
—Shelby County Curriculum and Instruction Team
According to Rebecca Kockler, Assistant Superintendent of Academic Content at the Louisiana Department of Education, “The Louisiana Department of Education designed Guidebooks to be practical and teacher-friendly. Our partnership with XanEdu allows us to make good on that commitment.”
