eWriteSteps Named 2015 REVERE Award Finalist
The REVERE (Recognizing Valuable Educational Resources) Awards recognize creative resources that engage 21st century teachers and learners. Produced by the Association of American Publishers (AAP) PreK-12 Learning Group, the awards are the only of their kind to recognize learning resources in all media, for all ages, and covering a wide array of educational subject areas and learning environments.
“We’ve always believed that eWriteSteps is a great asset to a student’s education,” said Suzanne Klein, Founder and CEO. “To be recognized for a REVERE Award is further acknowledgement that our hard work is making a difference for a new generation of learners.”
eWriteSteps is an evidence-based, 100% Common Core writing and grammar program for grades K-5. The comprehensive program gives teachers and students everything they need to develop their craft with confidence. The digital curriculum can be used with interactive whiteboards, visual projectors, computers, tablets, iPads, and document cameras.
REVERE Award finalists were chosen by evaluation of quality content and design, audience engagement and appropriateness, usability and originality and effectiveness, along with comments and recommendations given by judges. More than 100 evaluators in the education and publishing industries judged the applications. Winners will be announced during the REVERE Awards Gala on June 3 in Washington, DC.
