Welcome to MyTeachingStrategies®

We are excited to introduce you to MyTeachingStrategies®, a new and exciting upgrade to your GOLD® user experience. Upon logging into your GOLD® account, you will be taken to the new MyTeachingStrategies® platform.

The MyTeachingStrategies® platform provides you with an updated user interface and allows you to easily access key areas and functionality essential to a high-quality practice: teaching and assessing, ongoing professional development, reporting, and engaging with families.

MyTeachingStrategies® FAQs for Teachers

How will the upgrade improve my experience?

MyTeachingStrategies® provides a better and more supportive user experience. You can now access your digital Teaching Strategies products from a single location, eliminating the need for multiple browser screens.

MyTeachingStrategies® was designed with a teacher’s needs in mind, making our online resources more intuitive to use and easier to navigate, as well as being compatible with mobile devices.

As part of the MyTeachingStrategies® upgrade, the Objectives for Development & Learning now span from birth through third grade. This provides more information on the powers and importance of the first eight years of a child’s life for future school success. With this expansion, you may notice a few changes in the progressions that were updated based on the most current research.
