Our Approach

Engaging all Educators

Our process engages all educators, from teachers to superintendents, in improving instruction.  We create collaborative teams and take the time to understand local context when developing our supports.

Customized and Adaptive

There is no “one size fits all” approach to building rigorous instructional programs. Our partnerships are tailored to build on your strengths. Together, we set goals, build a custom plan, and measure our impact over time, using data to prioritize our efforts.

Standards-Aligned Content

Our trainings are fully aligned to the expectations of college and career ready standards.  Educators explore the instructional shifts, high quality curricula, and content-specific pedagogy in literacy and math through cycles of learning, application, and reflection.
