Propello, a teaching and learning platform designed by educators to meet students’ needs, has launched Inquiry-Based Booster Packs to provide schools and districts with classroom-ready, standards-aligned supplementary science educational materials. Booster Packs enhance student engagement through inquiry-based instruction that is flexible to an educator’s existing workflow.
The subjects now available in Propello’s Inquiry-Based Science Booster Pack align with NGSS requirements in Life Sciences, Earth and Space Science, and Physical Science. Each booster pack includes click-and-go classroom-ready lessons, real-world phenomenon-based videos, hands-on, active labs and activities, diverse assessment options, embedded student support such as language translations and text-to-speech, and teacher guidance.
The newly launched initiative also offers hands-on activities, fills standards gaps, and allows teachers to experiment with inquiry-based instruction without sacrificing quality.
Amanda Bratten, VP of Content & Curriculum of Propello, commented on the initiative:
Sometimes a student needs a little boost to spark their curiosity. We already know that inquiry-based learning engages students by encouraging them to ask questions and explore the world around them – but until now, switching to inquiry-based instruction has too often required teachers to tear down and start over. At Propello, you can’t just “turn on” inquiry-based instruction like a light switch. You’ve got to dial it up intentionally over time. Booster Packs empower teachers and districts to fold in engaging and high-quality instructional materials at a pace that works for them.
Propello aims to revolutionize traditional education models by providing advanced, customizable EdTech solutions that unlock the full potential of both students and teachers, regardless of their background, budget, location, or unique needs. The company recently announced its inaugural partnership with PowerSchool, the leading provider of cloud-based software for K-12 education in North America, to offer standards-aligned, pre-vetted curriculum, labs, assignments, and formative assessments that educators can modify based on the unique needs of their students to create more personalized learning experiences.
