As part of a procurement process, an important government agency has asked us for the names of any competitors to our JazzlesELA program so they can compare resources and pricing.
We are genuinely unaware of any – so I would appreciate your help.
JazzlesELA is a complete ‘Arts Integrated’ (or ‘Arts in Education’) program that is fully digitally delivered.
Essentially, the program is a ‘kindergarten-in-the-box’ package containing a fully developed ‘Arts Integrated’ pedagogy, methodology and SCORM compliant LMS resources – including over 500 sequenced, themed, song-powered animations, games and printable activity sheets.
JazzlesELA caters for all VAK-T/learning styles. It features multiple mnemonic strategies based on the Arts – including singing, dance, drama, art and performance.
Meeting/exceeding Common Core State Standards Kindergarten ELA, the supporting 26 Lesson Plans feature advanced ELA strategies that can also be used for Professional Development. For example, how to teach vocabulary, phonemic awareness, creative writing, etc.
Behind all the program’s laughter and fun, there is ‘academic rigor’ tailored appropriately to kindergarten. This claim is supported by two independent theses that demonstrate the program’s potential to overcome 50 years of literacy failure and turn the majority of our children into proficient, even advanced, readers.
You can download the theses from this link I think you will find some astonishing results
Transforming traditional play based learning into 21st Century learning, the program engages mixed diversity classes (including SPED and ESL) at exceptional levels – close to 100%.
While it has very many similarities to A+ schools and Reggio Emilia, it is highly scalable with very easy teacher in-servicing.
The program’s core focus is developing an active vocabulary/oral language base as the precursor to successful reading and learning.
Along with developing all six big ideas of beginning reading, JazzlesELA uses ‘arts integration’ to also develop essential non-cognitive skills such as co-operation, sharing, curiosity, confidence and self esteem.
This government procurement inquiry is a major opportunity for us.
I hope you can help.
Even a ‘no knowledge’ answer would be much appreciated.
