Curriculum Matters Series: Why High-Quality Instructional Materials Matter

October 5, 2021

It’s no secret that instruction has a direct impact on student achievement. Yet in order for teachers to provide high-quality instruction, they require access to materials of the same caliber.

In this first video conversation of our Curriculum Matters: Learning and Advocacy Series, Jess Box, EdReports Director of Field Services, discusses why high-quality instructional materials are crucial to improving student learning outcomes.

About Curriculum Matters

This no-cost workshop series, held in partnership with Pivot Learning,  The Education Trust-WestPartnership for Los Angeles SchoolsCalifornians Together, and the Loyola Marymount University Center for Equity for English Learners, invites folks to learn more about, and advocate for, high-quality curriculum and materials (HQIM) as a lever for educational equity.

In this workshop series, we explore HQIM and professional development for educators, with an emphasis on mathematics (given the schedule and focus of the California materials adoption process). With the expertise of our partners, we dive into the relationship between standards-aligned and user-friendly curriculum, excellent instruction for English Learners, and culturally relevant teaching.
