BROOKLYN (AUGUST 15, 2013) Flocabulary, an online library of educational hip-hop videos, today announced the launch of a revamped site with new features designed to help teachers implement Common Core State Standards. The product release also includes 17 new CCSS-aligned videos for English Language Arts.
With the new deployment, all Flocabulary units for math and ELA are aligned to Common Core Standards. Teachers can now navigate based on grade, subject and standard, and search using key words.
“Our goal is to make educational content more accessible for teachers and more engaging for students,” says Alex Rappaport, Flocabulary’s Co-Founder and CEO. “These new features will help teachers use Flocabulary more effectively to meet their CCSS objectives and bring their lessons to life.”
With the addition of new CCSS-aligned units for ELA, Flocabulary has expanded its robust library of content for teaching the Common Core in grades K-12. Topics include reading strategies like “Main Idea” and “Context Clues,” and writing strategies like “Using Descriptive Language” and “Point of View.” For older students, there are several videos about the research process, including “Note-Taking Methods” and “Source Credibility.” These new units have made Flocabulary’s existing library of CCSS-aligned resources for math and ELA more comprehensive.
For teachers who want to explore the resources, Flocabulary offers a free two-week trial of its digital subscription program. Schools can register for 30-day trials which provide access for all teachers and students. Both options provide unlimited access to all songs, videos and lessons. Paid subscriptions are available starting at $7/month or $63/year for an individual teacher, or $1200/year for a school building.
Flocabulary is an online library of songs, videos and activities for grades K-12. Hundreds of thousands of teachers use Flocabulary to supplement their instruction and engage students. Our team of artists and educators is not only committed to raising test scores, but also to fostering a love of learning in every child. For more information, visit www.flocabulary.com.
