Ensure Educational Equity When It’s Needed Most
School closures caused by COVID-19 are revealing an unfortunate reality: Many districts and schools have not effectively implemented high-quality instructional materials that serve the needs of all students and support teachers no matter where learning is taking place. In this on-demand presentation, originally recorded for the Carnegie Foundation’s 2020 virtual Summit on Improvement in Education, learn about a proven continuous improvement model for curriculum implementation, how it has been applied successfully in Stockton Unified School District (SUSD) in California, and how It could be adapted for the COVID-19 pandemic and other crises.
In one hour, Pivot Learning experts and SUSD educators cover:
- How leveraging instructional materials is essential to improving achievement for all students
- What effective curriculum implementation looks like, including providing high-quality, multi-year professional learning to all educators
- How to build a continuous improvement process for iteratively assessing and addressing the integrity of material implantation, gaps in materials and supplementation, system-wide supports for implementation, and the mindset and pedagogical and content knowledge of educators
- How SUSD leaders have begun to implement new math and English language arts materials in every grade, have provided every educator with high-quality, multi-year professional learning, and have built a system for the continuous improvement of their work
