  1. Making Curriculum Matter: How to Build SEL, Equity, and Other Priorities into Daily Instruction

    At the heart of education are two fundamental questions: what should we teach? and how should we teach it? Educators striving to design and deliver the best possible learning experiences can feel overwhelmed by the possibilities. To help them make these critical decisions, Angela Di Michele Lalor identifies five key priorities of a curriculum that matters – practices, deep thinking, social and emotional learning, civic engagement and discourse, and equity. With insightful observations, research-based background information and real-world examples from a variety of schools and districts, Making curriculum matter presents teachers and administrators with a path for reaching their most important overall goal: to provide comprehensive, meaningful learning to all students.

  5. The Edtech Coaching Primer: Supporting Teachers in the Digital Age Classroom

    F–12 schools worldwide are now evaluating how to better prepare for a disruption like the one caused by COVID-19. Schools were pushed into remote learning and many were not prepared for such a jump. The edtech coaching primer illustrates how, with effective implementation, edtech coaching provides a training and support structure that can help schools transition from what was to what could be. The role of the edtech coach is often misunderstood, which can cause funding to be diverted and leads to those who fill these roles being asked to perform tasks that pull them away from their most impactful work – supporting teachers and improving learning. This book proposes a model that’s both flexible in its implementation and clear in defining actionable steps so that the edtech coaching role has the greatest impact.
