Pearson has announced Forward, the new K-5 instructional system of services, tools and curriculum.

Forward integrates instruction across reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies, focusing on the rigors of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), with a emphasis on critical thinking, creativity and academic success skills.

There are two types of assessment in Forward. Content-area formative assessments support the content being taught and are tied directly to Forward’s curriculum in each sample lesson. Forward's Success Skills Assessments nurture and measure student growth around key critical thinking, creative thinking and academic success skills. These activity-based assessments are embedded into the curriculum and engage students in classroom activities that are consistent with the Common Core State Standards.
