Providing educators with the practical understanding and skills to meet the learning needs of their students means our work must be grounded in knowledge and research on teaching and learning. Our work does not stop there. Post-training observations and ongoing discussions are essential to ensure newly acquired skills are implemented in practice with fidelity. The scaffolded support is what brings about sustainable improvements in classroom practices that lead to academic growth and success for all students.
