Principal Raises Academic Rigor With LDC and Good Assignments

In the fall of 2015, Southeastern School, a K-12 school serving a suburban community outside of Birmingham, Alabama, began adopting the Literacy Design Collaborative and the Mathematics Design Collaborative instructional strategies.

In recent years, states across the nation have adopted K-12 college- and career-readiness standards in ELA and math.

To implement these standards, educators—teachers, school and district leaders, and other personnel who support instruction—need to learn more about the standards and instructional strategies for teaching them.
