New York, NY (PRWEB) September 22, 2014

The North Carolina State Board of Education recommends instructional material by Triumph Learning, producer of critically acclaimed K-12 texts and interactive digital tools. Department of Public Instruction for the Public Schools of North Carolina provided a list of recommended instructional material that the State Board of Education approved.

The list included Triumph Learning’s North Carolina Common Core Coach Mathematics for grades three through eight; North Carolina Common Core Support Coach, Foundational Mathematics, for grades three through eight; and Readiness for the Common Core for grades one through eight.

“Our Coach mathematics solutions are geared toward North Carolina’s specific standards,” said Mike Morley, publisher for Triumph Learning. “This adoption means educators will have the instructional materials they need to prepare students for their state standards and tests.”

Common Core Coach is an inclusive curriculum that adds depth, understanding, and practice to Common Core standards and skills instruction. Teachers guide students to master skills with structured, targeted lessons. Concepts are introduced in multiple ways, and the program provides ample time for assessment, student collaboration, and independent practice of all concepts and skills. Support Coach provides targeted instruction for students who are struggling and need more foundational support. Readiness for the Common Core is an online platform that complements the Coach series, where teachers can access hundreds of leveled lessons, assessments with Common Core test items, interactive practice sessions, and a versatile test generator.
