Instructional Practice Guides

Observing and providing feedback on classroom instruction

Central to our work with partners, the Instructional Practice Guides are classroom observation tools that describe standards-aligned content, teacher actions, and student engagement indicative of excellent teaching and learning.

Leaders can use these tools to inform their vision for excellent instruction, describe the current reality within classrooms, and identify areas of strength and growth.

Note: The nomenclature and general structure of the tools are based on Student Achievement Partners’ Instructional Practice Guides for math and English language arts.
