The Second Commitment

Use Instructional Tools and Strategies to Solve Problems of Practice

Thanks to many years of high-quality research, meta-analyses, and classroom action studies, we know better than ever what works in the classroom. But the question for educators has always been how: How do I put the research to work today in a way that’s meaningful for me and my students? That’s why we’ve been working with educators for over forty years to develop practical tools and strategies that enable teachers to put research to work in their classrooms. With a solid repertoire of tools and strategies, teachers can more effectively

  • Prepare all students for college and career success.
  • Build critical thinking and literacy skills.
  • Differentiate instruction to meet students’ needs.
  • Integrate instruction and assessment so that they work together to advance student learning.
By committing to developing a repertoire of research-based tools and strategies, we can greatly enhance the quality of teaching and learning in every classroom.
