  • What high-yield instructional frameworks/models are used within each area of instruction?
  • What high-yield instructional practices should teachers and district leaders consider as they prepare to implement?
  • What components are necessary to support development of high-quality instructional units?
  • How will instruction be differentiated to support all learners?
  • Are instructional experiences aligned with the level of rigor (thinking) so that students are able to demonstrate mastery of the expected standards/targets?
  • Are supports identified in the unit plan for students who have not yet learned the required standards/targets? For students who have already learned?
  • What professional learning will be needed to support teachers in understanding and using the identified instructional framework and practices?
