Savvas’s Economics program uses a research tested four-part learning model to enhance teaching and understanding.
- Connect Students make learning personal as they connect to content through a story and activate their prior knowledge, personal experience, and perspective.
- Investigate Students actively learn, investigate, and acquire key content knowledge through a variety of components both in print and digital.
- Synthesize Students extend their understanding by applying what they just learned in a quick recap and “pull-it-all-together” exercise before they move on to the next lesson.
- Demonstrate Students demonstrate their understanding through a variety of authentic, formative, and summative assessments.
