Expanding the teacher toolkit
Students deserve access to worthwhile and meaningful educational experiences, and teachers deserve the supports to help them create classroom environments where students can thrive. The Coherent Instructional Systems portfolio of the K-12 Program contributes to these efforts by building the evidence base for high-quality instructional materials. It also focuses on improving the supply, demand, and implementation supports for instructional materials and professional learning practices optimized for students who are Black, Latinx, English Learner (EL)-designated, and/or affected by poverty. In our Professional Learning Partnerships Initiative, we brought professional learning providers, curriculum developers and schools districts together in an effort to advance professional learning (PL) services.
