Every day, students count on their teachers to nurture the knowledge and skills they’ll need for future success. One critical support in this endeavor is a high-quality curriculum. But despite the many benefits, implementing a new curriculum is often bumpy because it’s deeply human, adaptive work.
4 Mistakes to Avoid When Launching a New Curriculum
Drawing upon decades of partnering with districts on curriculum launch and adaptation efforts, we’ve found four common mistakes that make or break success.
- Not engaging teachers in the selection.
- Not creating time for teachers to learn about innovations in high-quality instruction and materials.
- Only thinking about launch training rather than building ongoing and sustained coherence.
- Messaging false choices between fidelity and how to adapt materials to meet different student needs.
