High-Quality Instruction – Birth Through Third Grade


Panelists discuss what constitutes high-quality instruction in the early grades. This webinar addresses multiple perspectives, including addressing the following questions:

  • What does RIGOR look like in the context of play-based learning?
  • How do state agency personnel support district leaders and schools in optimizing curricula and environments for students from preschool through third grade?
  • How do district personnel and teachers effectively implement high-quality curriculum for children from preschool through grade three?


Listeners have a chance to learn from a national expert, state agency personnel, district leaders, and teachers working on issues of high-quality instruction.
