Learning Forward NJ Regional Workshop

February 19 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Learning Forward NJ Regional Workshop

COMMITTING TO EQUITY AND EXCELLENCE

The power of integrating instructional materials and professional learning

The challenge

Each year, schools and districts make decisions about the adoption of curriculum and instructional materials. However, often the processes and professional learning structures to ensure their effective implementation aren’t adequately addressed. As a result, new curricula and instructional materials may not necessarily lead to the results intended for students.

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. This workshop will help educators strengthen their capacity to reach all students by building strong connections among curriculum, high-quality instructional materials including Open Educational Resources, and standards-based professional learning.

  • Central office administrators
