Supporting English Learner Success with High-Quality Instructional Materials

May 24, 2022

Research shows that in the state of California a large achievement gap exists for English Learners (ELs), and educators report that they are under prepared to effectively teach their English Learners. In this latest installment of our Curriculum Matters: Learning and Advocacy Series, Leyla Bravo, Director of Strategic Partnerships and Initiatives at English Learners Success Forum (ELSF), discusses the importance of centering the needs of English Learners in the adoption of high-quality instructional materials (HQIM).

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.
