Featured resource: Professional Learning Conditions and Practices

Provide customized, content- and role-specific support for instructional leaders looking to implement effective instructional practices.

Right now, school systems around the country are working tirelessly to answer the question, “How do we support unfinished learning in light of COVID?” This year, we partnered with a set of districts to do the deep work required to answer that question. 

Here’s what we learned:

  1. The way to address unfinished learning is content-specific—in other words, it depends on what you are trying to teach.
  2. Attending to unfinished learning while moving forward requires teachers to spend more time on priority units, not less. 
  3. The decisions that matter most when it comes to unfinished learning don’t make for great headlines. They live in the pacing guide, the feedback a teacher gets on a lesson plan, the questions that arise during a student work analysis review, and the thousands of real-time decisions teachers have to make every day.

What do instructional leaders have to say about this series?

“The literacy breakout session was incredibly useful in considering how we can adjust our approach to the pacing guide to focus on key strategies to impact learning loss. I walked away with really concrete actions that I can take.”

“I appreciated the think-aloud with the pacing guide in the math breakout session. It confirmed what we did this year and helped me with how we approach our plans for next year.”

“The case studies were powerful and led to important critical conversations around how actions and decisions live out our stated beliefs.”

 “ . . . it was exactly what we needed. The engagement from the group as evidenced by the questions and discussion was terrific. I wouldn’t have changed a single thing.”
