Our schools are full of children with amazing potential. We depend on our teachers to deliver creative and challenging lessons that reach all students. But getting kids excited about learning is hard work and too often we ask teachers to do it all on their own.

Teachers need support from a team of leaders who know how to select, prepare for, and support the use of great materials. This website is a collection of insights, resources, and lessons from other systems that have taken this journey.

Where should you begin?

We encourage you to dive into the framework and explore, but if you want some help navigating where to start, check out the tools below. Each gives you a slightly different way to think about how to begin, so read the descriptions and pick the tool that makes the most sense for you.

Solutions to Common Challenges

This resource shares common problems or challenges that people have in selection and implementation and where to look in the framework to solve them. Read through the problems to see if there are any that speak to your experience and then start at the suggested point of solution.

Starting Point Diagnostic

This map guides you through yes and no questions, starting at the very beginning of the process selection, to determine where to begin.

Reflective Implementation Checklist

This self-reflection tool allows you to look back on all of the work you have done so far to determine where you might have missed steps or need additional focus. This is most helpful if you are already using materials and trying to figure out where to look to improve implementation.
