Beyond the Textbook
Discovery Education is developing an online basal service for elementary and middle school supporting science inquiry with content tied to Indiana state science standards. The service provides core science content through multiple learning modalities. Coupled with a real-time assessment component that measures students' progress, it recommends individualized resources that reinforce classroom instruction.

> Community and support fostered by the Discovery Educator Network (DEN), the largest active educator community, that offers guidance, resources, and best practices on the effective and appropriate use of digital media in the classroom.

> Professional Development services that improve educator performance and student achievement by building local capacity to meet the needs of today’s technology-savvy students.

> Assessment services that enable educators to measure achievement on an ongoing basis and effectively prepare students to succeed on high stakes exams.
