| Our parent company, The Lorenz Corporation, based in Dayton, OH, has been in the publishing business for 120 years. All five of our educational companies are published under the Lorenz banner, but they each have a unique focus and goal: |
Lorenz Educational Press
Our Mission Statement:
BRIDGING THE GAPS IN EDUCATION
Every product created at Lorenz Educational Press is based on our commitment to helping teachers provide a positive educational experience for students. We strive to produce products that embrace our mission to define learning areas vital to developing well-rounded students and empowering our future leaders.
Our mission is “Bridging the Gaps in Education” and it’s the statement behind the development of all our products. We believe that there are important concepts that should be part of a student’s complete education, but because of the rigors of teaching to the standards they are often not specifically addressed.
Our publications identify those areas, provide easy-to-use activities that can be integrated into core subject studies, and include tools for student assessment. We’re creating supplementary materials that focus on such areas as critical thinking and listening skills; cross-curricular learning; music and movement; and team building, which still meet the National Standards objectives necessary to easily incorporate them into the classroom.
In May 2008, Lorenz purchased the Milliken Publishing Company, which had been producing quality supplementary products for over 45 years. Particularly known for its best-selling math and handwriting books, this division includes a complete line of materials that spreads into all major core curriculum areas in a variety of formats. We specialize in blackline reproducible books, workbooks, resource guides, decoratives, and cross-curricular theme units. We also have a diverse line of full-color Transparency/ Reproducible books, which combine color overhead transparencies with accompanying reproducible worksheets.
Teaching and Learning Company
In November 2008, we also purchased The Teaching and Learning Company, which had been in business for almost 15 years. This respected company is known in the educational market for their popular language arts products (the Four Square Writing Method in particular) and their supplementary materials for preschool and elementary-grade students. Products include teacher resource books on every subject, including Arts & Crafts, Language Arts, Math, Responsibility Education, Science and Social Studies, Poster Papers, and much more!
Show What You Know® Publishing
In 2011, we became the exclusive distributor for Show What You Know® Publishing, which had been maintained by Engelfield & Associates. Show What You Know® Publishing specializes in K-12 supplemental materials aligned to the common core standards. We focus on intervention, skill-building and test-preparation that is specifically aligned with each standard and grade level indicator. Our materials are based on research and designed by experienced educators and a clinical psychologist. We focus on test-taking strategies, reducing test anxiety, and skill-building and intervention.
The newest division of Lorenz Educational Press, LEPinteractive, was created specifically for our line of digital products, including interactive whiteboard software and instant downloads. Our first IWB software series, Map Skills, provides content for middle school classrooms in an area, specifically Social Studies, where quality interactive materials are lacking.
