The learning team cycle is designed to focus attention on curriculum and instructional materials and assessments that develop content expertise and support teachers in reaching all students.


  • Teachers will learn how to integrate deep study and application of high-quality instructional materials in a team learning cycle.
  • School leaders will determine which processes and tools can be used to strengthen or supplant current practices.
  • System leaders will consider conditions and next actions for supporting system, school, and team-level changes.
