Student View

We’re in constant innovation mode—just like you!

Dear Storyworks 3 Teachers,

Since I became the editor of Storyworks 3, I have relied on you, our inspiring teachers, to show me the way. What are your challenges? What brings you joy? How can we help?

We’ve been in touch with many of you, asking, listening, learning, and then implementing changes to Storyworks 3. We are in constant innovation mode, adapting our resources and creating new tools to better fit your needs.

Here are a few of our recent additions that we’re especially excited about:

  • More Learning Journey Slide Decks, which combine stories with videos and resources. Perfect for students to do independently.
  • More tips for remote learning, with a lot of ideas for collaboration and classroom community-building.
  • New Skill Builder Slide Decks that transform Skill Builder activity sheets into engaging learning experiences.
  • More SEL articles plus a new SEL section in our lesson plans.

Please be in touch.
