Meet Jordan, a freshman in high school, and Taresa, an EdReports.org math reviewer, and hear them share why high quality instructional materials matter to ensure all students receive an equitable education.
How are you going to ask someone to learn if they don't have the materials to learn? If you give somebody a broken pencil, how do you expect them to write with it? teachers know what their students need teachers know the materials that their students need. It just helps the teaching environment.
When I think a great materials is something that levels out the playing field is engaging, challenging, and it's not necessarily just is it harder, right? Does it cause me to think outside the box? Will it cause the students to think outside the box being aligned to the standards is one measure that we can use to ensure that everybody can kind of strive toward the same targets?
