During this presentation, SETDA will release of the Guide to Quality Instructional Materials, a free online toolkit to support the vetting and curation of quality instructional materials for all learners. There’s a growing body of research finding that instructional materials can have as large an impact on student outcomes as teacher quality or reduced class size. Because of this, it is important to help provide guidance to state, district, and school level leaders in the selection of instructional materials that are aligned to standards. The toolkit includes sections on planning, budget, selection, implementation, and effectiveness with specific details of several state and district vetting processes. In addition, Washington’s Office of Public Instruction will share how the state supports the vetting of instructional materials including OER. The session will include opportunities to explore the new free site and engage in dialogue. This webinar will benefit K-12 administrators, curriculum leaders, and educators.
