We’ve been telling students that doing well in school creates opportunities—that showing up, doing the work, and meeting teachers’ expectations will prepare them for their futures. Unfortunately, that’s a myth. This research-based resource uses the voice of students to show us how schools are letting them down and how to fix it.
The Student Experience Toolkit offers resources for adults at every level of the education system. Browse resources designed to help educators, policymakers, and families improve students’ daily experiences in school.
This resource is a how-to guide for systematically gauging the quality of your students’ daily academic experience.
Use these content-specific protocols to assess the quality of assignments that students are asked to complete. (Protocols are available for math, ELA, science, and social studies.)
Learn to distinguish between high and low-quality assignments. The Student Work Library rates over 70 assignments on how well they align to college and career-ready standards.
The Instructional Practice Guide (IPG) is an observation tool that is designed around the shifts in instructional practice required by college-and career-ready standards. It focuses on observing Core Actions that support high-quality and standards-aligned instruction in action.
Districts can repurpose these TNTP designed content from previous convenings to support teacher and leader understanding of the Common Core shifts and standards.
Districts can use this chart to assess whether they are developing a strategic plan or a dynamic strategy that supports true, systems-wide change.
