n2y provides online subscription-based content that is available during a limited time frame. Providing the materials online during this limited time frame allows service providers to access dynamic material that is current, interactive, and holds to the most rigorous alignment to standards.
The following guide is intended to highlight the time frame and rationale for when materials become available.
UNIQUE LEARNING SYSTEM
Unique Learning System is published monthly through eight thematic units from September through May. A summer unit is available for June, July, and August and a holiday unit during December. Each monthly unit and related activities become available the first Wednesday of the month prior to the implementation month and stay online for two months at a time.
Student View is a feature inside of Unique Learning System that allows a student independent access to the interactive portion of the monthly lessons.
The content displayed in Student View reflects the content the service provider has indicated they will be teaching via the My Students, Monthly Lessons or Teacher Dashboard.
Monthly Checkpoints provide pre- and post-assessment measurements of monthly unit content and skill learning in Unique Learning System.
The Monthly Checkpoints are published one week prior to their unit becoming current. Suggestions for implementation can be found in the Suggested Monthly Plan located under Teacher Reference Materials > Instructional Guides.
After publication, Monthly Checkpoint assessments are available for assignment and testing the rest of the school year.
News2you is published weekly from September through May during the school year (except for a two-week break in December), and monthly in June, July and August. The newspaper issues and related activities become available the Thursday before the publication date and stay online two weeks at a time for service providers.
In Student View, the Current Issue can be made available automatically on the Monday of publication date and remain accessible for one week (except for in June, July and August where they are available for a month), along with the accompanying Communication Board and Joey's Locker activities. Otherwise, materials can be assigned manually from the My Students page. Learn more here.
In addition to the weekly newspaper editions, Breaking News articles are added throughout the week and can serve as supplemental coverage. All Breaking News articles published in the last 3-7 days can be made automatically available in Student View or assigned manually. Please note that some Breaking News articles may address sensitive topics. Review Breaking News daily and update assignments as desired.
