We are excited to announce Classtime’s new digital curriculum partnership with STORYWORLD International. Through this partnership, Classtime now offers 20+ interactive bilingual stories and word books for language learners of any age.
Developed with support from the U.S. Department of Education with iterative research provided by WestEd, STORYWORLD creates a positive social-emotional learning experience for students with a variety of language backgrounds. This partnership will enable STORYWORLD to help thousands of students around the globe along the path to language proficiency.
Founder and CEO of STORYWORLD, Cynthia Harrison Barbera, says, “STORYWORLD’s fundamental approach to language learning is through stories, with abundant visual clues embedded in each narrative. Games at the end of the story also reinforce vocabulary and comprehension. Compelling content combined with visuals captures the student’s imagination and prompts conversations about the material, most importantly, it makes learning fun.”
As the 2021 Superintendent’s Choice for Literacy Instructional Solution, STORYWORLD combines reading, writing, listening, and speaking to put language into context. Educators can subscribe to STORYWORLD’s content through Classtime’s Curriculum page.
