Math Implementation Support
Because materials implementation depends heavily on the content area, CalCurriculum provides content-specific implementation resources. Below are math solutions and resources to consider when evaluating your current math program. English language arts and science supports are coming soon.
CalCurriculum’s implementation process identifies three key areas of support in implementing a strong math program:
Materials: The instructional materials that have been adopted and how well those materials match students’ and teachers’ needs.
Planning: The professional development that has been provided to help teachers make the most of their materials and the expectations and communications about those materials.
Delivery: The day-to-day teaching and learning in classrooms and the necessary support needed from school leadership and coaches.
In considering which area of support to prioritize first, we recommend investigating materials first, then moving to planning, and then delivery. There are often relatively easy and economical ways to improve materials and planning that can have a big impact on student outcomes. Supports provided during the delivery stage are critical to successful implementation but are typically more resource-intensive.
