Our web-based courses feature a combination of multimedia instruction and automated assessment of student work to provide students with a highly-individualized, self-paced educational experience.Content is differentiated and appropriate for varying levels of student achievement, ensuring that all students remain fully engaged during the learning process. Students who are struggling receive specific instruction designed to address areas of additional need, while those who readily master a skill move quickly on to the next concept. The result is instructional software that personalizes learning, helping students at all levels achieve their full potential. We offer courseware in three categories:
Language Arts and Writing
Gifted and Talented
Support for Common Core and Blended LearningThe courses build conceptual understanding gradually, using a spiraling model, as students progress through the grade levels, addressing coherence. Rigor and fluency are achieved through extensive practice exercises and innovative learning games, which help build accuracy and speed with fundamental computations.
Developed by Stanford University, the Redbird Mathematics curriculum features the latest in adaptive instruction, gamification, and digital project-based learning. This K-7th grade curriculum is designed specifically to meet the requirements of Common Core (Focus, Coherence, and Rigor).

A New Learning Model
Our K-7th grade curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of Common Core (Focus, Coherence, and Rigor) and other standards.
- Focus is achieved through an emphasis on the major standards identified by Common Core.
- Coherence is developed by illuminating connections between concepts and utilizing mathematical structure.
- The three components of rigor—conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and applications—are integrated into the learning experience. Understanding is developed through initial instruction and honed through problem solving. Procedural skill initiates with instruction and fluency is achieved through plenty of practice, including engaging, on- going games. Applications appear throughout courses, in the form of contextualized problems and STEM projects.

Language Arts and Writing
OverviewThe Language Arts and Writing (LA&W) digital curriculum provides students with rigorous instruction and practice in the grammar, usage, and conventions of Standard English. Its five interwoven components – Parts of Speech, Sentence Structure, Sentence Composition, Paragraphs, and Reading – correspond to the Common Core English Language Arts standards. A cumulative progression of multimedia lectures and associated exercises across grades 2-7 fosters student literacy and critical thinking. Throughout the course, students are asked to compose responses to a wide variety of writing prompts. Watch an overview of our Language Arts and Writing course.
Advanced Language Research and TechnologyBased on years of research by Stanford’s Center for the Study of Language and Information (CSLI), the courseware utilizes innovative language analysis technology that accurately identifies hundreds of common errors in grammar and word choice. Informed by the analysis of more than 7 million student-composed sentences, we are bringing unparalleled personalized learning to the study of writing. The program provides students with error-specific feedback on sentences and paragraphs composed in guided exercises – something no other Language Arts course can offer.
Common Core Inspired ReadingThe new reading component of the LA&W curriculum has taken the Common Core ELA standards (CCS-ELA) as a blueprint for its design, content, and learning goals. This component balances a broad range of high-quality informational and literary texts, including familiar classics and diverse modern works. Each instructional unit focuses on academic vocabulary, evidence-based analysis, and critical thinking.
Gifted and Talented
Stanford University has long been focused on meeting the unique needs of advanced learners. Today, we are harnessing the power of adaptive technology and personalized learning to support each student’s individual pace and skill level, ensuring that even the most advanced students are engaged throughout the learning process. Developed by Stanford University, advanced editions of Redbird’s courseware are available for schools. GiftedandTalented.com, a division of Redbird Advanced Learning, offers our highly personalized digital courseware for individual learners to supplement their learning at home. GiftedandTalented.com is the premier online community dedicated to helping students become advanced learners – offering expertly curated articles, resources and research specifically tailored to developing the brightest children. Initially focused on developing advanced students, EPGY’s adaptive technology has been proven to dramatically improve learning outcomes for students in gifted and talented programs. In fact, a recent independent study found that more than 90 percent of EPGY students received 4 or 5 on their Calculus AB (92 percent) and Calculus BC (100 percent) exams – twice the national average. The same study found that more than 88 percent of EPGY advanced students taking the Physics C exam received a score of a 4 or a 5 – twice the national average.
