Using Goalbook to Ensure Instructional Alignment

Palm Valley Elementary School in Litchfield, Arizona

Litchfield Elementary School District
Goalbook’s Erin Christian led a day of professional development with Litchfield educators in summer 2017.

We appreciate Goalbook for providing information and opportunities that our teachers have had. It’s allowed them more time for conversation rather than digging through resources.

Reading passages in Goalbook Pathways clearly mark the Lexile level and word count for educator review prior to downloading and also give teachers options for providing authentically engaging texts to students. Texts include varied types of questions at different levels of rigor, thereby engaging students in higher order thinking skills. Teachers can differentiate assigned texts for students who read at different levels without compromising the high expectations of related grade-level skills.
