English Language Arts and Reading Curriculum
Engage Students in ELAR Skills • Automatically Track TEKS Progress
A 4-minute tour of the classroom experience and TEKS Analytics
With Exploros, students actively engage in learning about, practicing, and demonstrating interconnected TEKS-based skills. Specifically designed for device-enabled classrooms, teachers guide 5E model Exploros ELAR learning experiences, and students participate and contribute using social media, reading, writing, listening, speaking and critical thinking skills.
As students join in social classroom instruction, Exploros automatically stores student work and tracks progress against all relevant TEKS at the breakout level. This data is accessible to students, teachers, and administrators. It helps inform classroom instruction, providing teachers real-time insights into student comprehension and understanding. It also provides a data-centric foundation for instructional improvement via PLCs and other strategic campus or district programs.
