Top Five Reasons for Alabama to Partner with Teaching Strategies
- Automatic connection between curriculum and assessment.
Teaching Strategies connects your GOLD® assessment data with daily instructional resources in The Creative Curriculum® Cloud, creating an ongoing feedback loop that provides detailed guidance for individualizing learning.

Share high-quality, developmentally appropriate, and family-friendly content, playlists, and tools with families to fuel meaningful home learning experiences that extend and reinforce classroom learning.
- Support teachers every step of the way.
Provide intentional support for every professional development need, from beginner to expert, with embedded coaching, microlearning, and on-demand professional development, including dual-language learner support.
- Provide 24/7 access to the latest and greatest curriculum.
Offer access to developmentally appropriate digital curriculum at any time, anywhere, including new content as it’s developed.
I love the Teaching Strategies® The Creative Curriculum® Cloud when planning lessons. Having the digital content library makes it very efficient and convenient to put plans together. I also found two-way communication with families to be an asset during distance learning.
Lauren Evans | Talladega City School System
I love using The Creative Curriculum® Cloud to send parents activities that go along with our study. The activities are easy and fun for the families. I also used it to communicate with families. I love that I can access all materials at home or anywhere else. I don’t need to take any materials home with me to plan. Also, the digital library! I allow students to read along with the books on computer during choice time. Mighty Minutes® at my fingertips are awesome! I use them during transitions and even in the bathroom with children.
Lynn Haynes | Indian Valley Elementary | Sylacauga City School District
I especially loved using the family communication option this year. Having lesson plans readily available to input and share to parents was easy to use as well.
Christi Self | Pintlala PreK | Montgomery County School District
The Creative Curriculum® Cloud has been such a help during this time of face-to-face and virtual learning. Everything is in one spot! The digital resources have made lesson planning much easier and less stressful. Having all the resources in one place makes it easy to access and truly utilize them. I would recommend and would love to have it each year.
