MobyMax Launches Cognitive Skill Social Studies Curriculum

Posted by MobyMax on March 23, 2016
“Whether teachers use MobyMax Social Studies as their main curriculum or supplemental, their students will benefit from cognitive skill manipulatives,” said Glynn Willett, co-founder.

Engaging, interactive lessons are organized into four major domains: history, geography, government and economics. Each lesson uses cognitive skill manipulatives to push students to think critically about topics being covered. Additionally, lessons include quick checks for understanding to recap main ideas, periodic reviews of relevant vocabulary, and short quizzes for each topic. Each lesson concludes with a comprehensive test, which provides teachers a final summative measure of mastery.

MobyMax Social Studies covers all the essentials. For example, MobyMax_Social_Studies.pngstudents learn how to use a map scale, distinguish longitude and latitude, and read an elevation map. They hone study skills like identifying cause and effect, summarizing, drawing conclusions, and distinguishing fact from opinion. An assortment of graphs, charts and tables requires students to read flowcharts, pictographs and timelines. Students also master citizenship skills such as how to resolve conflict or make a choice by voting.

The adaptive curriculum covers almost all state standards as well as the National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies published by the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS).

MobyMax was recently honored as a 2016 EdTech Digest Award winner in the E-Learning and Blended Learning category. MobyMax was chosen as the winner by a panel of educators, entrepreneurs, journalists, and technology professionals who recognize outstanding companies working to transform the education technology industry.
