FINDING:

Sustained teacher participation in the ELG produced positive outcomes for teachers.

100% of teachers reported the ELG fostered meaningful teacher collaboration.

“I think that our whole climate has kind of changed, and we can easily talk to each other…Through our PLC meetings, we talk very frequently…That allows us to collaborate easily so that if something didn’t work or the lesson was just terrible, we can quickly correct things now, which was not the case before.”


Elements to transform instructional practice
Elements to Transform Instructional Practice Grant Evaluation

Instructional change can happen through a combination of

resources: time, financial compensation, instructional materials e.g., curriculum, curriculum maps, common formative assessments, strategies for consistent and common data use

human capital: support from administration, teacher leadership

organized time: professional learning communities


Parting thought
Parting thought… Grant Evaluation

“[H]aving the structure where [we] are working together, teaching the same things and comparing results and looking at those results together honestly [has] had a very, very positive effect on the quality of instruction in our classrooms.”
