  • Launch, Explore, Discuss - Help students get started with the lesson and provide motivation and expectations as well as helping facilitate support and discussions of student ideas to meet lesson goals.
  • Anticipating and Monitoring charts - Support teachers in anticipating and responding to student thinking in every lesson. 
  • Selecting, Sequencing and Connecting charts - Guide teachers in using and advancing student thinking to reach lesson goals. 
  • Instructional routines that support sense-making, discourse, and note-taking: Notice and Wonder, Which One Doesn’t Belong, Think-Pair-Share, Pause and Record and Pause and Reflect

Setting Up Teachers and Students for Success

This curriculum is built around tasks that revolve around student thinking to help break them down and ensure success. Each lesson has assessments that provide the student the process to think through a task to gain a hands-on experience of the lesson being taught.

Assessments can range from exit tickets, quick quizzes, self-assessments, unit assessments and performance assessments based in real-world contexts to prompt critical thinking.
