Standards Bootcamps are two-day intensive summer trainings offered in math and ELA at every grade level, focused on the two most challenging domains for each content area. These domains were identified using data from state assessments and from reflections from educators on the areas they want the most help.
Educators are working hard to help students meet a higher bar of excellence in the classroom, but even with a set of rigorous academic standards, knowing how to help students isn’t always clear.
Similarly, district and school leaders are doing their part to support teachers, but doing so for every content area and every grade level presents challenges on capacity and breadth of knowledge.
At Instruction Partners, we have seen that when teachers are deeply clear on what students need to know and be able to do, they can help students reach these high expectations. But gaining that deep understanding requires support.
Thankfully, when great educators come together to learn together, we can pool our collective knowledge to support each other. When that happens, teachers can raise the bar in their classrooms, while making sure students are learning what they are teaching. This is why we created Standards Bootcamps.
