Curriculum and Instruction
Guided by Common Core State Standards, outcomes, goals and expectations, the Educational Elevation, Inc. team has more than 15 years of experience in the research, design and development of curriculum and instruction. Four questions inform design, development and implementation.
What do students need to know?
How will we know they’ve learned it?
How will we help them get there?
What will we do when they struggle?
Embedded in the units of study are 21st Century Skills, technology, differentiated learning techniques and assessments.
An essential element to professional development involves peer support along with teacher trainer support, and feedback to empower educators to have a stronger belief and confidence in their instructional practices.
