Instructional Practice Toolkit and Classroom Videos
The Instructional Practice Toolkit and Classroom Videos is a professional learning resource for teachers and teacher educators. There are two instructional practice toolkit modules: one for mathematics and another for English language arts/literacy. Each toolkit module centers around a few sample lessons that help educators see what college- and career-ready standards can look like in practice. Working with lesson plans, student work, and videos of instruction, the modules walk educators through a series of activities to analyze the lesson, interpret samples of student work that resulted from the lesson, and reflect on ways to improve the lesson as well as next steps for instruction. The mathematics and English language arts/literacy instructional practice toolkit modules include: facilitator resources, participant handouts, videos of lessons being taught, and videos of interviews with teachers who taught the lessons. To extend the two toolkit modules, the resource offers a supplemental collection of lesson plans, videos of instruction, and student work samples.
