Training & Resources for Four Foundations

Great classroom teachers generally excel at implementing four foundational skills: Content Planning, Assessment, Instruction, and Classroom Culture. These practices are vital to establishing a classroom that is focused on student learning and engagement. 

Training in the Four Foundations of Great Teaching gives teachers the practical tools, as well as the understanding, they need to become outstanding teachers. 

The Four Foundations of Great Teaching (linked below) is a 50-page booklet designed for new and experienced teachers, as well as administrators. It lays out the essential practices that make for an effective classroom in four short chapters. Teachers are given specific and practical actions they can implement right away to improve student engagement and learning.

This booklet explores four foundational practices:
