Use Great Curriculum

With Great Curricula,
We Can Raise the Bar
for All Students

All students deserve to experience rigorous instruction and high expectations, but recent research tells us that students of color and students from low-wealth communities often don’t. Educators are eager to know more and do better, and we can help.

How Can We Help?

We help educators at the district, school, and classroom levels to choose and use high-quality instructional materials* – so that all students are taught rigorous academic content

Get Students Back on Track

Use Our Free Equity Toolkit

School communities can take this moment to not only respond to the needs resulting from learning disruptions last spring, but re-envision how their systems support educational equity.

Together with our trusted partner, UnboundEd, our free Equity Reset Toolkit provides resources for a nine-week analysis process focused on equitable learning recovery in K-12 ELA and math that can be adapted for in-person, remote, or blended learning.

Get Our Support to Reset

Want assistance completing the steps in our Equity Reset Toolkit? Pivot Learning and UnboundEd work remotely alongside district leadership to facilitate data collection, guide analysis, and make customized recommendations for an equitable learning recovery plan based on your stakeholders’ unique needs and insights.

Pivot Learning and UnboundEd

Pivot Learning and UnboundEd can help your district build the systems and capacity to deliver excellence to every student, every day. Together, we provide aligned, coherent, and integrated services.

*High-quality instructional materials are rigorous, grade-level, and sequenced assignments for students. We also support implementation of planning and assessment systems that are part of traditional curricula.

Choose the Right Instructional Materials* for Your District

Selecting instructional materials is one of the most critical decisions a district makes. Instructional materials can have as large an impact on student outcomes as teaching quality. We partner with EdReports to support districts and other local agencies as they choose high-quality instructional materials that meet the needs of their learners.

CalCurriculum

Pivot Learning and EdReports have partnered to offer adoption support for instructional materials in California through our CalCurriculum website. CalCurriculum provides:

  • Independent reviews of instructional materials
  • Actionable resources for adoption of instructional material
  • Guidance on selection of instructional materials, tailored to the California context

*High-quality instructional materials are rigorous, grade-level, and sequenced assignments for students. We can also support implementation of planning and assessment systems that are part of traditional curricula.

Implement Great Instructional Materials* in Your District

Visionary leaders in education know that high-quality instructional materials* are one of the key levers for increasing outcomes for all students. With our support, districts and other local educational agencies can engage in comprehensive, transformative implementation of newly adopted instructional materials. 

When you work with us, here’s what you can expect:

  • Learn more — Our first step is to learn more from you and your learner community about your unique strengths, your policy context, and how to help.
  • Build Together — We then work with your team to plan for the work of choosing and using high-quality instructional materials for your classrooms. This includes developing a detailed scope of work (typically, for one to three years), an evaluation plan, and a plan for communicating with your stakeholders.
  • Implement Instructional Materials — Once implementation is underway, we provide system-wide project management that includes communications and evaluation planning, and on-site services:
    • Training for your educators on both your chosen instructional materials and pedagogy; and 
    • Ongoing, in-school observation and feedback for educators to adjust and improve.
  • Sustain the Work — By working collaboratively with you on implementation and continuous improvement efforts, we make sure you are prepared to carry the work forward when we’re done.

Partnerships Make Us Stronger

We work together with a variety of curriculum publishers who design the high-quality curricula that work for students. When you choose a high-quality curriculum for your learner community, we work with the publishers to align our professional learning services.

Pivot Learning and UnboundEd can help your district build the systems and capacity to deliver excellence to every student, every day. Together, we provide aligned, integrated services at the district level, and for educators and leaders in schools that focus on achieving equitable outcomes for students. Our model is customized to your district’s needs in collaboration with you, to ensure we are creating something sustainable together. 

Pivot Learning and the English Learner Success Forum (ELSF) work together to support integration of English Learner (EL) supports into the implementation of high-quality instructional materials.

*High-quality instructional materials are rigorous, grade-level, and sequenced assignments for students. We can also support implementation of planning and assessment systems that are part of traditional curricula.

Use Great Instructional Materials* in Your Classrooms

Visionary educators know that using high-quality instructional materials* is one of the best things we can do to support student academic success. Making sure all teachers have access to those instructional materials and know how to use them is essential. With the right implementation support, great instructional materials and aligned instruction can raise the bar for students. With our subsidiary, CORE, we support district-wide implementation of instructional materials through on-site services, including:

  • Training for teachers and instructional coaches on specific instructional materials in math and ELA and on rigorous pedagogy aligned to those instructional materials and rooted in the science of reading
  • Ongoing, in-school observation and feedback with instructional coaches and principals to learn and improve

This work is done in conjunction with district-level implementation support.

*High-quality instructional materials are rigorous, grade-level, and sequenced assignments for students. We can also support implementation of planning and assessment systems that are part of traditional curricula.
