Uncovering Successful Next Generation Learning Strategies – ERDI Superintendent Leadership Forum 2014

Uncovering Successful Next Generation Learning Strategies

To help support districts implementing Common Core, Hanover Research’s analysts conducted the following series of steps:

  1. Evaluated the common core implementation landscape – outlining key curriculum shifts and presenting curriculum and instructional development resources of note;
  2. Reviewed professional development needs for teachers, principals, and other district stakeholders;
  3. Assessed the current state of CCSS implementation within California specifically, benchmarking trends in curriculum development and teacher support services present at peer districts;
  4. Provided case study profiles of selected districts nationwide;
  5. Surveyed teachers to gauge district knowledge of, and level of preparation for, implementing CCSS;
  6. Identified teacher preferences in professional development structures and resource availability.

These studies have informed district’s continuous improvement efforts and helped to outline guiding principles for supporting student outcomes. Hanover Research has replicated this methodology across different partners and projects to provide a custom approach to district implementation, while also providing resources for districts to share with parents, teachers, and community stakeholders.
