Want to learn about Secondary Solutions and our products? Watch our video!



Secondary Solutions is the endeavor of a high school English teacher who could never seem to find appropriate materials to help her students master the necessary concepts at the secondary level.  She grew tired of spending countless hours researching, creating, writing, and revising lesson plans, worksheets, quizzes, tests and extension activities to motivate and inspire her students, and at the same time, address those ominous content standards!

 

Before the inception of Secondary Solutions, materials that were available were either juvenile in nature, skimpy in content, or were moderately engaging activities that did not come close to meeting the content standards on which her students were being tested. Frustrated and tired of trying to get by with inappropriate, inane lessons, she finally decided that if the right materials were going to be available to her and other teachers, she was going to have to make them herself!


Mrs. Bowers set to work to create one of the most comprehensive and innovative Literature Guide sets on the market.  Joined by a middle school teacher with 21 years of secondary school experience, Secondary Solutions began, and has matured into a specialized team of intermediate and secondary teachers who have developed for you a set of materials unsurpassed by all others.

What makes Secondary Solutions materials different?

Secondary Solutions specializes in Common Core English Language Arts and National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) /International Reading Association (IRA) National Standards in English Language Arts standards-based supplemental materials for the 5th through 12th grade English Language Arts classroom.  With now over 44 states and territories transitioning to the Common Core State Standards, finding high-quality, classroom-tested, standards-aligned materials is crucial.  Secondary Solutions has worked diligently to make sure that all our materials are of the highest caliber, helping you teach the Core curriculum using your favorite works of literature. Our materials are ready-to-use, practical, and appropriate for grades 5-12. 

With the economy on the rocks, education has become an easy target.  All over the country, budgets are being slashed despite the escalating needs of students—and the teachers who must teach them.  We know that administrators are putting more pressure on teachers to produce a certain output—often test results—unfortunately, despite the means.  Teachers continually struggle to please administrators and the public while attempting to maintain their own sanity, creativity, and motivation in the classroom.  Teachers certainly feel even more pressure to keep students engaged while teaching them the critical skills students face in high-stakes testing.  We realize it’s a critical balancing act – and we are here to help!

In these tough economic times, you don’t have time to waste on creating, writing, editing, and researching your own materials—and you don’t have the money to waste on substandard products. You can have the confidence that with Secondary Solutions materials, we have done all the hard work for you--and you can be assured that our materials address those skills you are required to teach according to the Common Core State Standards Initiative. And you can feel at ease knowing that all the while, they are learning to enjoy the literature you have taken the time to teach.

Why should I buy Secondary Solutions materials rather than a competitors’ cheaper product?

Let’s just say you get what you pay for.  Yes, Secondary Solutions materials seem to be on the comparatively higher-end of the scale for Literature Guides, but we GUARANTEE* you are getting your money’s worth.  Our Literature and Writing Guides are chock-full of fully-reproducible activities, handouts, study guide questions, quizzes, tests, pre- and post-reading activities, essay prompts, and much, much more!  No embarrassingly juvenile activities, wasted “white space” or blank pages, redundant questions, or mere suggestions for activities you are expected to create yourself!   Our products are age-appropriate, efficiently formatted, and ready to be copied and used in the classroom.  Our Guides are fresh and relevant—written in the last five years—a crucial component to consider in this ever-changing educational world.  We are so sure you will love our materials that if you don’t, we’ll refund your money in full.*
