Client Spotlight: EL Education’s ELA Curriculum Gets Highest Marks

EL Education’s Grades 6–8 curriculum, copy edited by the Super Copy Editors team, has received an “A” from, amassing 100 points out of a possible 102.

In a publisher’s response, EL Education (formerly Expeditionary Learning) expressed pride in how reviewers had noted that the instructional materials are “well designed,” “show effective lesson structure and pacing,” and have “clear directions.”

Here’s how the curriculum measures up against its peers:

EL Education is a leading nonprofit K–12 organization. Its free, open-source curriculum has been downloaded millions of times and is in use in dozens of states.

The acclaimed curriculum “combines rigorous, standards-aligned content with effective instructional practice, bringing together the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of Common Core Success,” said EL Education.

Here at Super Copy Editors, we’re really proud to be a part of this long-term project. (See our EL Education case study here.) It has been an amazing experience to work alongside so many talented, passionate people who have helped this curriculum go from dream to reality.

Here’s the curriculum in action in an eighth-grade class:

We’re currently at work copy editing the forthcoming K–2 component, as well as a refresh of the Grades 3–5 component.
