SETDA’s From Print to Digital: Guide to Quality Instructional Materials provides guidance to administrators and educators in the selection of instructional materials. The toolkit includes useful resources, guidance and examples that will help identify best practices when considering instructional materials including both core-instructional materials and supplemental resources
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 quality instructional materials that are aligned to standards and accessible for all students.
Quality instructional materials are content-rich materials aligned to standards that are fully accessible and free from bias. They support sound pedagogy and balanced assessment to help teachers understand and interpret student performance. – SETDA
