Because civic engagement is more important than ever, Westchester Education Services is committed to high-quality social studies content development that provides the most effective learning vehicles to help students decipher the world around them. Our team develops student and teacher social studies materials for all grade levels that help students acquire the skills they need to engage successfully with the world. You can count on Westchester's social studies team to develop engaging national and state-specific programs for your next state adoption or national product launch.
Our expertise includes direction and preparation of the following:
We develop curricular materials based on national and state standards for grades K-12, including student- and teacher-facing materials for print and online.
We develop formative, summative, and high stakes assessments, including Tech Enhanced Items, for K-12. We are a Learnosity content partner and have experience working in other off-the-shelf or custom solutions.
We incorporate pedagogical best practices to provide teachers with innovative and inclusive ways to engage students.
We keep abreast of state tests in order to create materials that mimic the tests, provide additional support, and provide a variety of practice options for students. We also excel at adapting materials from state to state.
Our content teams are experts in developing targeted supplemental programs to address remediation, enrichment, intervention, and instructional needs, including social studies leveled readers.
Our content and design teams work together to create engaging readers that teach social studies content through narrative and non-fiction text and illustration.
Westchester’s content team has extensive experience developing interactive programs on a variety of platforms. The team quickly learns client content management systems and applies best practices in developing engaging and interactive content.
Our content teams do more than just create great content—they are also experienced educators who understand how to frame and pace content so that students can grow along their learning paths (and how to identify prerequisite skills to aid students who need additional support).
Westchester’s content team often partners with clients at the outset of a program in order to conceptualize and focus test the program. Once the vision for the program is set, our team can help with the roll-out steps, including guideline development, to ensure the project execution is smooth.
We understand that content that is inclusive and that helps students connect to themselves and the world around them provides better long term academic and social outcomes, so we embed best practices in SEL and CRE into all content we develop.
