Expanding the teacher toolkit
All students deserve access to worthwhile, rigorous and meaningful educational experiences. And all teachers deserve the supports to help them create classroom environments where students can thrive. High-quality instructional materials allow teachers to better help students master the skills, knowledge, and experiences that will support them in school and in life—especially when they are implemented effectively in schools that address the needs of Black, Latino and low-income students.
However, the adoption of instructional materials alone is insufficient to ensure that teachers are fully equipped to deliver high-quality instruction that meets individual student learning needs—it must also be accompanied by professional learning opportunities. We work with partners to improve the availability and awareness of high-quality, standards-aligned instructional materials in English, math, and science, and delivery capacity in the field.
