EQuIP trained the Delaware Reading Cadre. The EQuIP rubric is used to evaluate lessons and units created and piloted by Reading Cadre to be posted as models on our website.
ELA Education Associates and University of Delaware partners use the EQuIP rubric to give targeted feedback to participants of our State Personnel Development Grant (SPDG).
“The EQuIP rubric training gave me the opportunity to internalize the language needed when conducting evaluations.”
“…it also gave me look-fors when discussing lesson content, where gaps exist in units, and how to help teachers with targeted professional development and resources.”
EQuIP trained members of our Institutes of Higher Education; participants were able to gain a deeper knowledge of the CCSS and discussed ways to use the rubric in teacher preparation programs.
The Delaware Department of Education uses sections 1 and 4 when reviewing applications of potential Charters.
A symbolic representation of the composition or of the composition and structure of a compound.
