What do the numbers at the front of the lessons signify? Are they for different levels or different versions of a lesson? It's a little confusing for me. I've seen a number of lessons with the same title, but different numbers.

August 9, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
InspirEd Educators
InspirEd Educators  (TpT Seller)
Hi Loria, All of our materials are completely Common Core. We have been doing everything the Common Core proscribes since 2000! The way our lessons work is we use content, whatever that may be, to teach relevant and enduring skills. We teach kids to think critically and creatively, to examine all kinds of texts and respond to high-level questions that require all of the CC skills in a wide array of different activities. We actually have a YouTube video about that very thing! It's at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLtioQeV_0Q. Also, there's another video of what's in a unit that you may also find helpful since you're considering the entire thing. I think you'll love it if you've never tried our materials!

I saw reference to a game that needs to be played (something like "Don't Break the Bank"). Are the games included? Also, how Americanized is the content? I'm an international teacher teaching a Canadian curriculum, so I'd like universal terminology. Please advise ASAP.

Thanks,

InspirEd Educators
InspirEd Educators  (TpT Seller)
Hi Zack, To answer your specific question about the game, all necessary materials referenced on a teacher page are included. The only things teachers may have to come up with for any of our lessons might be a few art supplies, Internet access, and small, common items like coins. As to the broader question, I just looked through the unit so I could give you a decent answer. I think it would be fine for use in Canada. The only Americanized stuff is economic data and one reference to a Social Security number. You could use as is and note that it's similar but not exactly as in Canada, or you could find Canadian info. Overall, it's not that much that would make a difference at all. Hope that helps!

Hi Amy,
No, the lesson includes what is listed on the teacher page - in this case, it is a project. The "Come One, Come All" handout lays out the directions and guidelines for the project and the other handout is the rubric. Each individual lesson comes from one of our complete units - we include the table of contents from that unit so if you have to teach a lot on a topic (in this case, Asia), it may make more sense to purchase the whole unit. Hope that helps! Please don't hesitate to email us directly if you have any other questions or we can be of assistance.

Hi Jessica,
I checked the lesson and all pages are in order and correct. My only thought is maybe the person purchased an earlier version? Not sure! But anyway, everything you need for the lesson, including the content, is included. The kids read the springboard (warm up) which is an informational passage explaining how the U.S. took the offensive in the Pacific and then they take on the role of an advisor to Truman, considering all angles of using the bomb (a decision-making chart and some primary sources relating to Truman's positions are included). Then, you read a script, taking kids through a guided visualization of the specific events of that day. It's a really good lesson that I think you'll love. Please contact me directly if I can answer any other questions!

Hello!
Yes, everything described on the teacher preview is included. The "springboard" is what we call a warm-up. In this case, the students study some Prohibition statistics, then for the activity they analyze some "facts" and "opinions" about the content. It's a way to not only present the relevant information about the topic, but for students to practice determining the difference between fact and opinion at the same time. All student pages and answer keys are provided. Thank you and don't hesitate to contact me directly if we can be of further assistance!

Hi Erica,
We looked at the lesson and figured out the problem. Sorry about that. We write complete units but put up lessons on TpT. We try to make sure each stands alone, but this was a mistake. This lesson works with the previous one and requires the answers from the last activity. Kendra says she went into the store and added the page.
I think TpT sends you an e-mail if a lesson you've purchased changes so you can re-download it. If there's any problem, you can contact us directly @ 866-934-6774, and Amy will make sure you get what you need.

Buyer re: D1301 Native Americans COMMON CORE eBOOK UNIT!
Are all reading materials/worksheets provided? I wanted to make sure that I will not have to search for additional books in order to teach this Unit if purchased. Please let me know as soon as possible. Thanks!

Yes, everything you need to teach is in the unit. The only other things you need to teach our units (except primary elementary) are art supplies and a computer. If you want to go to a library for research, that would be fine but not necessary. Hope you like it! Sharon Coletti, InspirEd Educators

Buyer re: D1301 Native Americans COMMON CORE eBOOK UNIT!
I will be teaching a Native American Unit and European Explorers Unit this year due to the transitions to Common Core. Unfortunately, we will not have any textbooks to use for these Units because our Fifth Graders are currently using them. Do both of your Units provide all reading materials/copies of text? Thanks!

Jerry Suarez  (TpT Seller) re: 3107-7 Gilded Age Political Machines Game
For this lesson the students are to read "Political Machinery". What is it? Does it come with the lesson? I want to be clear before I purchase this lesson.

Thank you,
Jerry

Hi Jerry, Thanks for contacting us! In the lesson you're referring to "Political Machinery" is the Springboard (lesson-specific warm-up) reading for which the students analyze the roles of the political boss, district captains, and community members. Then they use what they learn in playing a game called "You Scratch My Back..." Finally, there is a debriefing analysis to ensure the students understand the concepts. Just for the record, anything your students would need to complete our lessons (except a computer and minor things like coins for pawns) are always included. Hope that helps!

Kristen,
I was able to download the file with no problem. To be safe, I re-uploaded it to TPT. Please email me if you are still having problems so I can send it to you directly.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Thanks for using our products!

Hi, I was answering a question from today and noticed yours had not yet received a reply. Sorry! We've all been at conferences and away from our computers the last three days. Anyway, the activity you ask about does not have an answer page. Like many of our activities, they don't really have specific, correct answers. We intentionally make our lessons open-ended so ALL students can succeed. The question students answer in a wide variety of ways is, "What do you think and why?" Almost anything can be right IF they can come up with their own ideas and justify them in a reasoned way with content. The thing is: low-level kids can do this, whereas giving the "RIGHT" answer can be daunting. We try to write so ALL students can feel included. The result is hopefull that they're more willing to take risks and try! Hope that helps! Sharon Coletti, InspirEd Educators

Hi,
We want to start selling on TpT and we're wondering if you have any tips when there are two authors as opposed to just one in regards to finances or any other aspect that might make it more challenging.
Thanks for your time!

Hi Maureen, I'm not sure how much I can help, but... Our company is a corporation and my business partner and I hold shares of stock. We are paid dividends, which in your case would be profits from TpT sales, based on our percentage of ownership. If you guys are equal, you'd just split profits equally. If you're each writing your own lessons, it might be easier to sign up to sell separately. Hope that helps! Sharon Coletti, Author and President, InspirEd Educators

Hi,
What is a Springboard handout?

InspirEd Educators  (TpT Seller)
A Springboard is just our name for a lesson warm-up. Depending upon the lesson, they introduce lesson concepts, provide necessary background information for the lesson activity, and more-often-than-not they teach test-taking skills at the same time. If there's a reading, graph, map, etc., we usually write high-stakes-like test questions. They address a whole range of Common Core and other skills. Hope that helps! Sharon

Buyer re: 3101-3 Jamestown Colony
Does this lesson have an open response question?
September 13, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
InspirEd Educators
InspirEd Educators  (TpT Seller)
The Springboard (warm-up) is multiple-choice test prep. The lesson part, however, is open-ended. Given the "facts" about Jamestown, students evaluate whether or not they agree with actions and decisions made. Then there's a mini-research activity. Hope that helps! Sharon

Everything is included! The teacher page for each lessons lists the materials needed, which with the exception of art supplies, are all included in order behind the intro page. There is also an objective sheet, which is an outline of the unit for kids to complete. It then becomes the study guide for differentiated tests in the back. You might be interested to know that we're working on Student writable files to go with the units, which should be available on our website very soon.

Lindsay Girard  (TpT Seller) re: D4102 Ancient Egypt COMPLETE EBOOK UNIT!
if I buy this unit does it include the Springboard readings and handouts? is this seperate?

I am teaching in a mulit grade classroom and having access to prepared unit would save me countless hours of work. I will most likely purchase all the units for grade 8 to use this school year.
Please let me know.

The Springboards, objective sheet, and differentiated tests are all included. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how much time the complete unit can save you! Plus, we write to age ranges, so that would work great for multi-age.
Thanks for asking, Sharon Coletti

Our “I Think: It’s Elementary! – Native Americans” unit includes 15 complete lesson plans PLUS a sixteenth lesson that’s a book report and rubric, should you decide to have them read as we suggest. To answer your specific question about the Springboards, yes, they are included. They are lesson-specific warm-ups that introduce lesson topics, provide background information, and teach a wide range of Common Core standards.

The unit also includes a list of recommended books on the topic, student Objective Sheets that outline and guide study of the topic, lessons that vary daily, and differentiated tests. If you go to our web page @ http://inspirededucators.com/Elementary.html and click on the title, you can see the Table of Contents. I think you and your students would really enjoy it!

Thanks for asking and please feel free to contact us with any future question or comments,

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Sharon Coletti and Kendra Corr are two former teachers, department heads, and mentors with more than 35 years of combined classroom experience. They left the classroom to develop the kinds of materials they couldn't find for themselves and their colleagues. InspirEd Educators' products are the result of their collaborative efforts. They are, as one customer described, "Outstanding! Some of the most interesting, engaging, and accurate material available to educators."

MY TEACHING STYLE

InspirEd lessons are all activities, all different, and all interesting, engaging, and thought-provoking. Our concept is that we use standards-based content to teach important and enduring skills: critical and creative thinking; reading and writing,collaborative problem-solving, practical use of technology, and LOTS more! By making students THINK ABOUT content, it becomes "theirs." They retain what they learn, along with a host of other skills they'll most certainly need!

InspirEd units are used in elementary, middle, and high schools across the country with MANY repeat customers! Our "I Think: Thematic Units" are also available in teacher stores and catalogues.
