Teaching Quality Brief

Education Resource Strategies, 2009

This brief describes a vision for investing in teaching quality at the school level and provides guiding questions for both school leaders and those who support them to consider and discuss as they rethink and reallocate current resources to better support improved student learning.

Organized around these four Guiding Resource Principles, the brief provides research, practical examples, and strategies for prioritizing people, time, and dollars in ways that promote instructional quality and student success. These strategies can either be implemented by individual schools or designed and supported by school districts for implementation at the school level.

We describe a broader system framework and principles for district leaders to consider as they create a system-wide strategy for building teaching quality in the Education Resource Strategies brief, Creating a Strategic Human Capital System.
