About Us

Two individuals that have spent a great deal of our professional life in the educational arena founded XTRA Weekly in 2005. One of our founders managed a very successful Critical Thinking Skills program for the San Diego Unified School District.

We recognized the need for a very comprehensive and targeted critical thinking skills program that could be made available to the global education community at a very affordable price, that is easy to access on the computer, and is very easy to use and manage. This combination makes a very rewarding experience for participating teachers. Our programs are available in English for grades 3-5 and 6-8.

Our lesson plans are all state standards based, with a focus on developing questions based on state standardized test question formats. Where possible we use higher order questions and higher category words.

We are very proud of this rich and rewarding educational tool for those teachers sincerely interested in their students gaining a competitive edge using critical thinking skills.
