Cathy Weaver is a Math Teacher at Batavia High School in New York. Castle Learning did not only offer Ms. Weaver an organized way to easily create quality review assignments, but it also helped her students solve questions with strategies they might have missed. “My students have become more successful since I started using Castle Learning. The continuous review they are getting has helped to improve their retention of the material.”
When we asked Ms. Weaver about what tactics she tried before started using Castle Learning, she reported “I had to create my own review worksheets. This can be a tedious task, and it takes time to be sure that all topics are being covered.”
Ms. Weaver also had difficulties finding the type of questions that she wanted to use with her students to meet the common core standards. She found that Castle Learning made it simple to create review worksheets that offered questions similar to the Common Core standards.
Ms. Weaver also liked that Castle grades the bulk of an assignment. Grading is not always something she has time for; going over each individual question on every student assignment is extremely time consuming.
When we asked Ms. Weaver if she has experienced any direct “big win” in her students’ results because of Castle Learning, she replied with a short story: “I live in the same city that I teach. At our local ice rink the parent of one of my students came up to me. She was talking about the difficulties her son has been having in geometry. She then began to tell me how much she likes the ‘new’ program I had started using. It gives her and her husband a chance to work with their son and has helped them to better understand where he is struggling. That ‘new’ program is Castle Learning. I am happy to say that I have seen this student’s grades and understanding of the material improve greatly since I started using Castle.”
