Qualifications of this Organization (licensure, trademark, etc.):

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) believes that every successful project must be supported by an outstanding and robust set of resources. We are dedicated to publishing and delivering a vast array of educational materials and services with the express purpose of providing students of all ages with the means to reach their full learning potential. HMH’s illustrious history—coupled with a relentless desire by the industry’s top professionals to provide the finest research-based, scientifically proven products—is what sets our company apart as a leader in the educational marketplace.
HMH’s largest division is its Education Group, headed by Mike Lavelle. A vital partner in the current global education reform movement, the Education Group publishes a comprehensive set of best-in-class educational solutions, ranging from research-based textbook programs to instructional technology to standards-based assessments for students and educators. The HMH Education Group comprises three subgroups.
1. Comprehensive Curriculum Group, led by Rita Schaefer, focusing on the provision and support of basal textbooks and related services; 2. Specialized Solutions Group, focusing on the provision of supplemental curriculum and related services targeted to address districts’ most demanding challenges, including preventative solutions; and, 3. Enterprise Solutions Group, led by Russ Carlson, focusing on the provision and support of data management systems, assessments, content, technology, and related services to drive holistic, results-oriented solutions.
Together, these three business units address all segments of the educational market in the United States and around the world, and are committed to fostering an environment of innovation and customer focus.
In 2007, the Houghton Mifflin School Division merged with Harcourt School Publishers, effectively creating the premier provider of elementary school curricula. Harcourt School Publishers had provided exemplary textbooks and related instructional materials since 1919. Houghton Mifflin School Publishers offered comprehensive programs in Science, Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, and Social Studies as well as integrated Pre-Kindergarten curriculum, Reading and Math intervention, and professional development. Together as the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Education Group, the organization is now the preeminent publisher of K–12 educational resources and includes the following imprints and brands: Great Source, Holt McDougal, Rigby, Riverside, Saxon, Steck-Vaughn, and The Leadership and Learning Center.
Among our many services is a full range of professional development activities, provided through Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Professional Development group (HMHPD).

We offer a robust collection of professional development workshops for Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 educators. Topics offered address Reading, Writing, Balanced Literacy, Math, Science, English Language Learners (ELL), Intervention, Reading in the Content Areas, Educational Leadership, Instructional Coaching, and Technology Integration.

Explanation of how we are able to provide differentiated services to meet the individual needs of schools and districts.

As an integral part of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, HMHPD provides powerful, research-based professional development services. Before establishing a professional development plan, each school district is assessed to identify specific needs. Professional development trainers and curriculum consultants are assigned to the school or district based on the assessed needs. Each HMHPD professional development plan typically begins with training for school leadership and/or site-based instructional coaches. This approach creates a network of support for teachers as they begin their training. The teacher training then addresses one priority area at a time. After sufficient training on a topic, HMHPD trainers provide timely classroom support through demonstration lessons and classroom coaching for each new instructional strategy learned. This cyclical approach gives teachers the knowledge, skills, and support they need to master one area of instruction before moving on to the next. It also ensures maximum transfer of their new learning into classroom practice.
Customers have a wealth of knowledge and experience at their reach, with consultative services, educator training, product training and product-aligned courses designed to meet the needs of today’s students and educators. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt provides innovative and effective learning solutions for students in all grades that meet the needs of each individual student. Our consultants will work with each school/district to determine which products and services best meet the educational needs of students, selecting from the many available within our catalog.

How will we evaluate our services and support to schools and districts and its effectiveness in school/ district/ student achievement?

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will work with Colorado districts and schools to evaluate the effectiveness of our materials and services. As a leading educational publisher of print and electronic products, HMH is continually revising its product lines to remain on the cutting-edge of the field in order to provide educators with the data and tools necessary to meet the evolving needs of today’s students. We will be pleased to collaborate with Colorado educators to develop an evaluation process that will demonstrate how our products and services improve student achievement. In addition, we offer Colorado schools and districts outstanding customer training and support to ensure the optimum use of our deliverables.
