What teachers have to say:
"Love the pacing! Love the abundance of materials! And I like that there is thinking involved, not just plug and chug." (
Maryland Academic Support Program for Algebra and Data)
"I want you to know that we have bought MANY Walch resources in social studies in our district. I have all of your document-based, critical-thinking, and/or primary source/persuasive writing books. I hear it all the time in meetings with our social studies teachers, particularly at the high-school level: I love Walch!"
"This workbook (
Focus on U.S. History) is wonderfully organized, easy on the eyes, and loaded with pertinent information, making it both left- and right-brain-friendly. Thank you!"
"I love, love, love this book (
Daily Skill Builders). It has so much information in it."
"I just wanted to tell you that
Media Literacy: Advertising is hands down one of the best books I have ever bought to use in my classroom. I was really pleased with the activities because they were not only very relevant, but they were actually interesting and not outdated. One other thing that I wanted to mention that I liked was that the book was exactly the right size to fit on the copier machine, which meant that duplicating worksheets was very easy."
Real-Life Math: Geometry) is a fantastic tool for geometry. The lessons are so developmental and easy to use."
10-Minute Critical-Thinking Activities is an awesome book! It opens the minds of my students and allows them to think 'outside the box'."
Differentiated Instruction for Social Studies - love it! Great ideas for activities that target different areas of Social Studies."
Walch Education's relationship with educators is part of our essence. Our company's founder, J. Weston Walch, taught in a public school for many years. His children, who now sit on our board, have spent their lives as academics and in publishing.
Educators have written and edited our materials, have given us invaluable feedback, and have consistently supported our products.
Here's how we can support you:
- Free Teachable Moments Lesson Plans are available as pdf downloads(Adobe Acrobat Reader Required). Use these lesson plans to initiate or complement your classroom discussions, on topics as varied as vending machine bans, the Seven Wonders of the World, dark energy, or the poetry of Robert Frost.
- Our e-news gives you advance notice of new Walch Education publications and events of note.
- Many of our publications have been authored by educators or former educators. Let us know if you have a manuscript you'd like us to consider or review.
- Are there ideas you'd like to pass along about Walch Education, our materials and programs? Submit them.
Working together in small groups, students approach ELA problems from a variety of perspectives.
