High-Quality Instructional Materials-Resources to Use in your Classroom Tomorrow AM
Thursday, May 25, 2023
Sponsored by:  
This session is designed to provide investigation and application of high-quality instructional materials at various grade levels. Free resources are available to all educators. This training session provides directions for accessing the materials, opportunities to investigate various sources, and time to apply learning by designing an upcoming lesson  


Various research studies have been conducted regarding the need for high-quality instructional materials in the classroom. The results are astounding. 

  • Teachers know that quality instructional materials are essential for student success, but only 18% believe that the district-available materials align to the standards

  • Teachers spend 7 - 12 hours a week, on average, searching for online instructional materials.

  • Students spend more than 500 hours per school year on assignments that aren’t appropriate for their grade level 

  • In classrooms where students had greater access to grade-appropriate assignments, they gained nearly two months of additional learning compared to their peers

Have we got your attention? If so, consider joining us for a High-Quality Instructional Materials (HQIM) training session to meet your needs.
