Listing every possible application for the Eureka Street Learning method would take many pages, but these are some examples of how Eureka Street Learning aligns with Common Core State Standards for K-12:
- English Language Arts. Make a kinesthetic game out of identifying parts of speech, and using them to build clear sentences. Play games that identify the 5 Ws and give presentations about the story.
- Narrative. Use performing arts to improv a story with a clear narrative arc and identify relevant information that “moves the story forward”. Act out characters to demonstrate different behaviors and qualities, consider how others perceive them, and develop vocabulary to describe them.
- Science. Make science concepts, such as electromagnetism and gravity, real by acting them out. Use games to check understanding and retention.
- Research and investigation. Use mock interviews to develop investigation skills while reviewing subject matter.
Eureka Street Learning brings social studies to life. Students really “get into it”.
With the Eureka Street Learning approach to science, this was the first time every student understood the subject.
Eureka Street Learning “brought reading to life” and improved comprehension and involvement.
