Founded by Teachers for Teachers
In 1997, two high school English teachers were inspired to launch Applied Practice while searching for ways to integrate test preparation into their daily curriculum. Today, Applied Practice has a comprehensive catalog of supplemental materials to assist teachers in teaching a topic-based curriculum, while contemporaneously preparing students for standardized tests in today’s exam-driven environment.
Our teaching tools are literature-based for English and topic-based for Science and Social Studies. Each product line provides preparation for the current exam-driven environment by offering test questions presented in the style and format of a particular standardized test, utilizing content typically taught in a planned unit. Our intention is to help teachers utilize their classroom time more efficiently by offering simultaneous content review and critical test-taking practice.
Applied Practice was founded by teachers for teachers. Our tools enrich the classroom experience by motivating teachers and students, enhancing productivity, and improving results.
