Meet Anna, a high school sophomore, and Tyler, an EdReports.org math reviewer, and hear them talk about why high quality instructional materials matter for engaging students and inspiring them to go further in their education.
I think teachers care that you're learning something in a good environment. They're the ones who are teaching the class. They're the people who are assigning the book assignments. They should be the number one decision-makers on what textbooks to use.
Teacher voice is so important in the adoption of curriculum. It has to make kids think providing those high-quality opportunities for them to critically think increases engagement, but also it increases their willingness to learn more to go further and even take their learning outside of the classroom.
