Learning Acceleration

Educators have always experienced and stepped up to the challenge of how to best tailor instruction to achieve the best possible outcomes for students. The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed growing disparities, and we must redouble our collective efforts to ensure all students, regardless of background or current learning level, can thrive. The Playbook for Accelerating Learning (PAL) was created to fill the space between our current challenges and the joyful and successful future we envision and deem possible for all our students.

 

In the following sections, the PAL will: 

  • review current research on how best to improve student outcomes, 
  • lay out models that practitioners can use to accelerate learning in their systems, 
  • propose ways in which they can plan with their teams in the pursuit of such goals, 
  • envision how their efforts may take place during and beyond the school day, and 
  • suggest ways in which LEAs can leverage community-based organizations and engage families as partners in the work. 

By making these resources available in a concise and actionable format, the CCEE hopes to assist instructional leaders in California shorten their preparation period for accelerating learning and promoting the outcomes all students deserve.
