“The personalized pathways in Waggle help our students get the individualized support that they need to accelerate their learning.”
- Dr. Philip Lanoue, 2015 National Superintendent of the Year, Clarke County, Athens, GA

- Karen Blaine, Chief Academic Officer at El Paso Leadership Academy, TX

Common Core Coach
“Each Coach lesson is tied to all of the ELA standards, not just reading, but it also had speaking, listening, and writing... So I was able to include different types of language arts in my reading block and cover more standards that way. It was easier to touch all the standards...”
- 3rd grade ELA teacher
“I like how Common Core Coach begins with understanding the concept and then moves to connect where students are able to apply what they’ve learned. It walks you through one problem step by step and then shows different ways to solve that problem. It gives students a visual. It breaks it down on a kid friendly level and provides multiple examples.”
-3rd Grade Math Teacher
“Common Core Coach has helped me be confident that my students will perform well on test day, more than our current curriculum. The curriculum we purchased for this year didn’t prepare them as well because it didn’t have as much explicit instruction. The Coach book helped me check in to see where my students were in terms of proficiency.”
-6th grade ELA teacher
“I use my Triumph materials probably more than anything else in the classroom. This is our first year teaching Common Core and it’s so confusing, no one knows what to use yet. So, I use my Coach books because I know they work and my kid’s scores are great. The kids really love them.”
-3rd Grade ELA teacher
“It’s a guidebook for what we are going to be doing in the Common Core. If you have any hesitation about Common Core, if you want something that’s going to give you the big picture, without putting in thousands of hours of work on your own, this is a wonderful product.”
-6th grade reading intervention teacher
“Our district tried to find a solution that ensured we hit on all the pieces of literature recommended by the Common Core. That is why we purchased Common Core Coach. It is not logistically possible to teach all the required novels recommend by the Common Core State Standards. Common Core Coach gives students a little introduction so maybe when they take the test they can relate it back. They may not be reading the exact same piece but at least they’ll have an idea of who the characters are, the premise, the setting etc.”
-8th grade reading teacher
“Lopez’s students use Common Core Support Coach two to three times a week. She loves that she can use it to teach entire units or assign a lesson for a student to do during computer time or at home if they have Internet access (for Triumph Learning's Readiness program). She also loves that the software lets her run reports and see where each student is at any given time. 'It’s a fantastic resource,' she says.”
-Loridana Lopez, 4th grade language arts and social studies teacher at Buena Vista Arts - Integrated Magnet in Montclair (CA) Tech & Learning, February 2015
“I have data that proves my students are learning through the use of this product (Support Coach). The pre-test I administer at the beginning of the year measures literacy proficiency by skill and provides an overall proficiency rate. What’s alarming is that in the beginning of the year, according to our state standards, my students were only at a 28% proficiency rate. Two months later, I tested them again and they were at 59% proficiency. That’s an exceptional difference. I follow Support Coach, verbatim, exactly how it is written. We do every read and every single activity.”
-7th grade literacy teacher
“This book to me is totally different than any book I’ve seen because the lessons build from grade level to grade level, they connect with one another. We are required to access student’s prior knowledge and this (Support Coach) does that for you. With the Plug-in, if students don’t get it, the standard they are building on from the previous grade level is right there and you can go back to it.”
-3rd grade teacher
“There weren’t many resources that would help break down a skill into simple parts. Now that I’m using Support Coach, it really does help. The teacher’s guide tells me what I need to do if students are still struggling. It’s self-explanatory. It offers suggestions for how to address common errors and misconceptions and shows me how to teach the concept in a different way if need be.”
- 4th grade Teacher
“We have a third year teacher who uses Support Coach and it has really helped her students. The class was very low and they’re coming up to the point where they are outscoring the high achievers class in their grade level by using these materials.”
-3rd grade teacher
“The students love the illustrations and the cues in the box. The characters in the book give them tips about how they should be thinking when they’re working out a problem. It gives them hints and suggestions and builds their confidence. The basal textbook that we have doesn’t have that. It just gives them problems to do; it doesn’t break it out in steps like Support Coach. Even in the teacher’s edition, it doesn’t break it down. It doesn’t have differentiation like in Support Coach.”
-4th grade teacher
“Having looked at other books, I would say Support Coach comes the closest to what the kids need to know. The books leave a lot of room for discussion. You don’t feel rushed by the book. I feel comfortable using it. The kids are doing the majority of the work.”
“Crosswalk Coach is very user friendly. This is my first year teaching middle school and it helped me figure out what students were required to learn for the state exam.”
-Middle school ELA teacher
"We need to be constantly assessing our students and the reporting feature in Readiness helps me see which questions students are struggling most with. There is a lot of consistency between the data from the assessments and their daily assignments. It’s helpful to see what the weak areas are for certain students. It helps me determine which students are struggling and which need more help in particular areas.”
-Middle school ELA teacher
“Readiness for Common Core helps me personalize learning for students who are struggling with particular areas. I’m able to generate assignments for them based on the results I receive from their benchmark assessments and provide them with extra support for areas they are weak in.”
