ADVANCING EQUITY AND EXCELLENCE:

Aligning College and Career Ready Standards, Curriculum, Instructional Materials, and Effective Professional Learning

4-Days of Deep Learning brought to you by Student Achievement Partners and Learning Forward

July 18-21, 2019

The challenge

Each year, schools and districts make decisions about the use of curriculum and instructional materials. However, often the system, which includes professional learning structures to ensure effective implementation, is disjointed and lacks coherence. As a result, education initiatives may not necessarily lead to the results intended for students, and often exacerbate issues of equity and access to high-quality teaching and learning.

The solution

Schools and school systems prioritize equity and excellence when they ensure all students have access to both effective teaching and meaningful classroom resources aligned to rigorous student standards. Learning Forward’s Institutes will help educators strengthen their capacity to reach all students by building coherent connections among college- and career-ready standards, high-quality instructional materials, assessment practices, and standards-based professional learning.

Attend the full 4-day Institute

  • Deepen understandings about the importance of institutionalizing a coherent and aligned curriculum;
  • Investigate effective professional learning’s role in implementing high-quality curricula and instructional materials;
  • Understand how equity outcomes require critical connections between effective teaching, professional learning, and curriculum resources;
  • Learn practical processes for identifying, evaluating, selecting, and implementing curriculum materials in different subject areas; and
  • Explore how to leverage teacher learning teams to tie it all together.

Who should attend

  • District and school leaders responsible for the design, selection and implementation of college- and career-ready standards, professional learning, curriculum and instructional materials.
  • Instructional coaches and teacher leaders who support teacher teams and PLCs to strengthen their capacity to teach all children.
  • Teacher teams tasked with leveraging professional collaboration, curriculum study, lesson design, and assessments to ensure success for every student.

Why attend?

  • Hear from curriculum experts who are supporting districts that have transformed instruction and teaching.
  • Leave with a professional learning plan that will change teaching and learning in your system.
