Instructional Supports: The Missing Piece in State Education Standards
Education Trust
Instructional supports guide how academic standards are taught and translated into student learning. Teachers want a clear curricular framework, a rich array of teaching resources, and ideas for assignments that tap higher order thinking. As states implement new standards, they must simultaneously provide teachers with the tools to teach them effectively. In this paper, The Education Trust offers insights about the best ways states can support the nation's educators in their efforts to help students meet high academic standards. It is hoped that this report will inform the decisions of education policymakers as they aim to use the new standards to lift achievement and prepare all students for college and careers.
