Well-prepared teachers play an important role in students’ success. With more rigorous college- and career-readiness standards like the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, developing mathematic content knowledge and academic literacy is more important than ever for both teachers and students.
WestEd’s curricula, books, and professional learning courses and workshops feature engaging, standards-based academic content, as well as instructional strategies that build academic literacy skills as an integral part of subject-matter learning.
For example, according to national research studies, our Math Pathways & Pitfalls K–8 Curriculum has also been successful in increasing students’ achievement on standardized tests. The curriculum was designed with built-in support for teachers and lessons that are aligned to Common Core content standards in relevant domains.
WestEd provides both comprehensive and focused supports for schools and districts along with an array of useful books and resources.
