Over the past few months, we’ve been collecting your feedback to develop a new Gooru experience that saves you time while you’re looking for and organizing learning resources for your students. Today we’re excited to release an update that will allow you to use Common Core State Standard filters as you search, find English Language Arts resources and collections, and create quizzes! Check out the new experience and see how easy it is to create a collection! Help us spread the news by forwarding this email to a friend or colleague. Thank you for your feedback, ideas and support- we couldn’t have done this without you!
