LSI Executive Director of Core Instruction and Virtual Products Meg Bowen explains what it would mean to your school or district when you implement the research-based strategies in the Core Instruction Power Pack.

Overcome Instructional Challenges During COVID-19 and Close Equity Gaps

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the largest disruption of education ever, with research showing all students have lost 3 months of math learning and 1.5 months of learning in reading. The loss is greater for students of color, who lost 3-5 months of learning in mathematics.1

According to EdWeek,2 student engagement is down by more than half and nearly 3 out of 4 teachers are not able to focus on delivering standards-aligned instruction during e-learning.

Now more than ever, teachers need to be able to deliver effective core instruction.

Developed by experts to work in brick and mortar classrooms, the Core Instruction Power Pack is built upon more than 20 years of proven, evidence-based methodologies that empower teachers and students to better collaborate on rigorous, Tier 1 core instruction in traditional education settings.

Acceleration, Not Remediation

Invest in supporting your teachers now to dramatically decrease the amount of funding needed for ongoing intervention efforts. Learning gaps have increased exponentially due to uneven instruction, lack of access, and disengaged students because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Help teachers accelerate learning by addressing what is necessary for grade-level proficiency to prevent further learning loss.

The Core Instruction Power Pack is designed to help educators understand the advantages of acceleration over remediation. Acceleration is a game-changer for students because it ensures access to rigorous grade-level content for everyone.

What you don’t know about academic interventions may be hurting your students. In the Core Instruction Power Pack, LSI provides research-based instructional strategies for accelerating student learning.

Increase Student Engagement

The Core Instruction Power Pack will help teachers facilitate active student engagement through expectations and student collaboration. Students’ SEL needs should be addressed to maximize their receptiveness to academic content. Learn to create routines that maximize instructional time, student equity, autonomy and rigor.

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to learning. CIPP will guide you through a systematic plan for diagnosing and addressing each individual student’s missing skills. For learning to be effective, you need a system in place to monitor and verify learning.

Bridge the Learning Gap for All Students at Once

Stop relying on Response To Intervention strategies aimed at INDIVIDUAL students and start addressing learning losses for ALL students by bridging gaps, not filling holes. Research shows that remediation often results in students falling farther behind.3

The Core Instruction Power Pack guides teachers with strategies to move away from the reliance on outside interventions and instead make small adjustments within lessons so that every student has support to accelerate their learning. Schools can continue to monitor progress, so every class is aligned to grade-level standards.

Now is the time to power up your Tier 1 core instruction.
