Tools for Teachers, by Teachers: The Literacy and Math Design Collaboratives


Tools for Teachers by Teachers LDC-MDCWe want to ensure that teachers have the tools and resources necessary to help students meet college-ready standards. Over the past five years, we have invested $152.8 million to support teachers in deepening their practice. These investments are anchored by two collaboratives—the Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) and the Math Design Collaborative (MDC)—that focus on codesigning and implementing high-quality tools for rigorous literacy and math instruction. Created with and for teachers, LDC and MDC tools were designed to be easy to access and use. The tools tap into teacher expertise and facilitate the travel of good practices, ideas, and strategies across classroom, school, district, and state boundaries.
