Curriculum and Instruction
In the age of the Common Core, teachers need high-quality instructional materials and a strong community of practice to meet the demands of the new standards. New Visions is meeting that need through open source curricula projects that are organized by content area and that leverage dynamic teacher networks.
These curricula are designed by New Visions instructional specialists working with teachers from New Visions schools. A broader group of teachers participate in ongoing professional development which provides them with support for the use of these materials, access to a subject specific community of teachers and an opportunity to shape these resources. In addition to these subject area curriculum projects, New Visions provides support for administering and using diagnostic assessments to support Regents preparation and organizes a range of other instructionally focused projects and professional learning communities.
