Ensure high expectations and engaging learning experiences for all students
Providing all students with authentic experiences focused on strengths and learning progression—not deficits and gap filling—can change their trajectory. It’s time to use strategies typically reserved for advanced and gifted learners to advance all students’ learning.
Designed to support equitable access and opportunities through rigorous and engaging assessment, curriculum, and instruction, Accelerating Learning for All, PreK-8, provides strategies to move all students towards becoming independent critical thinkers and problem-solvers—a goal that should not be contingent on background, assessment performance, or zip code. Packed with evidence-based practices and culturally responsive teaching methods, this book includes:
- Strategies to support diverse learners and develop student voice
- Support for social emotional learning
- Tools, prompts, and exercises
The current educational environment is ripe for change. Authors McKinney and Urlik help teachers put equity into action with strategies proven to deepen and accelerate learning for all.
