When we, as teachers, use research-based, rigorous standards in our classrooms, we empower our students to become independent, thoughtful, and excited learners. We hope to provide a space for you to share the ways in which you’ve increased equity and rigor in your classrooms as a way to celebrate your great work and inspire and encourage your colleagues as they work to provide a 21st century education to their students.
Please join us by sharing your story with us. We’d love to hear how your standards driven instructional strategies, classroom activities, and curriculum have changed the lives of students. Feel free to share pictures, video, student work, or even the voices of other stakeholders, like parents, students, or community members. We also hope you’ll join us on Twitter by tweeting your stories to our hashtag #allS2.
We are united by a common passion for providing all students equal opportunities for a bright future, regardless of where they live, their ability, the color of their skin, or their socioeconomic background. It’s time for teachers to take charge of the narrative of our profession and our students’ success. It’s time for all of us to share the stories of the standards-driven work we are doing every day in classrooms around the country. Our students’ futures depend on it.
