Implementing High-Quality Curriculum in Your District

Comprehensive high-quality professional learning programs designed to ensure effective adoption and implementation of HQIM in your district

Get Started

Implement High-Quality Instructional Materials with Integrity

Unlocking the power of a new curriculum can be a transformative decision for districts and schools, but leaders quickly realize that the path to implementation is filled with challenges and complexities.

As you embark on this new chapter, it becomes evident that dedicated and personalized support is crucial for a smooth rollout across all classrooms. Teachers, eager to bring the curriculum to life, need guidance and resources that empower them to effectively integrate it into their teaching practice. Without proper support, the vision of improved student outcomes may remain out of reach.

Cultivating Engaging Learning Experiences

Research shows that the best lever we can pull to help teachers succeed in implementing a new curriculum is very similar to the way educators teach their students - through differentiated and ongoing support with checks for understanding and opportunities to try, measure, and learn.

Professional learning should be an intentional journey of growth and exploration. Our sessions are designed to create engaging and interactive learning experiences that empower educators. Through personalized coaching, collaborative discussions, and reflective exercises, teachers discover new strategies and techniques to enhance delivery of HQIM.

Districts Nationwide Partner with BetterLesson for Successful Curriculum Implementation


Rutherford County Schools Shine In Curriculum Implementation

Rutherford County Schools (RCS) went all-in with BetterLesson and OpenUp Resources to bring the acclaimed EL Education K-8 Language Arts Curriculum to their 26 elementary schools. The transformation has been incredible.

Collaborative planning allowed teachers to share success and challenges across their PLCs, and model schools helped other teachers in the district to see the changes in student reading, writing, thinking, and speaking in action.

The Phases of Effective Curriculum Implementation

We understand that the journey of curriculum implementation doesn't end after a single workshop or training session. That's why we offer ongoing support throughout the year, providing a lifeline for educators as they navigate the challenges and triumphs of implementing the new curriculum.

A Comprehensive Approach to Curriculum Implementation

When educators are given the resources to strategically plan the implementation of a new curriculum with the realities of their classrooms in mind, these tools and curricula can enable teachers to build engaging, student-centered classrooms where all students are able to access content and take ownership of their learning.

No two districts are alike, and neither are their professional learning requirements. We recognize the diverse needs and challenges that districts face during curriculum implementation. Our approach is tailored to your district's specific context, ensuring that the support we provide aligns seamlessly with your goals and priorities. We believe in fostering a collaborative partnership that goes beyond simply providing materials.

With differentiated learning experiences paced throughout the year, districts can successfully implement high-quality curricula to build student-centered classrooms where all students can engage meaningfully with academic content.

Implementing High-Quality Curriculum

Fostering a culture of continuous improvement and creating structures for reflection are critical components in achieving a successful curriculum implementation that meets the evolving needs of students and educators. When leaders plan job-embedded professional support for educators during implementation, districts can ensure the successful adoption and implementation of the new curriculum in all classrooms.
