The Quality Instructional Materials Guide provides guidance to state, district, and school level leaders in the selection of high quality instructional materials that are aligned to standards, address education goals and are accessible for all students. Key considerations, questions and helpful hints are included throughout the guide. Additionally, the guide includes best practice examples from states and districts and national, state and local resources to consider when selecting quality instructional materials
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.
