The MORE lessons really incorporated a lot of different modalities for learning, which was great.  The videos, the songs, the visual.  I think they did a really good job integrating the contents into different ways for students to access it.

My class is OBSESSED with science now!  Are there more of the MORE lessons????

I know some of our MORE teachers they were using MORE strategies during small group instructions two years later, so it transfers to other things.  The MORE study is not something exists in isolation.  It has strategies, ideas, resources, and activities that you can apply to other subject areas.

It's a really wonderful comprehensive program.  It uses all aspects of literacy that I felt every teacher learned.  You want them to do word work, you want them to write, and you want them to read, and it does all of that, also incorporating science and social studies.  So this program isalbe to check all these boxes.  It's also incredibly engaging.

I appreciated MORE because every lesson started off with them thinking, and it made everyone participate.  Everyone had to have an idea or write something down.  You could be just sitting like, 'oh, I guess I just opted out right now,' there is no opting out.  Everybody had to think and that questions were just the gatewary or sideways to the lesson, like 'hmm. what are we gonna learn today?'
