What concrete steps can leaders and teachers take to move to high quality instructional materials?

Hi Literacy Lovers,

In our recent podcast episode we talk with two district leaders doing exciting work with evidence-based, high quality instructional materials (HQIM). This episode takes us behind the scenes with an important conversation about how to engage and support teachers, coaches, and leaders in this work. Our guests, Jean Wyche and Janise Lane, illuminate what’s needed to build coherence, collaboration, and confidence while transitioning to science of reading aligned, high quality materials. We’re so glad you’re here to learn with us.

Did you know that less than 20% of the materials in classrooms are aligned to standards? This resource from EdReports.org outlines Six Key Adoption Steps and provides case studies to see how different districts have applied the steps. 


Our friends at Rivet Education work with educators to evaluate professional learning partners, scale curriculum adoption and implementation, and build knowledge of HQIM and professional learning. The Professional Learning Partner Guide (PLPG) provides a searchable database of professional learning partners that have the expertise to support HQM implementation.
