High-quality instructional materials in action
Welcome. What are high-quality materials, and why do they matter? We’ve assembled resources here for you to explore how to support your district or school in adopting a high-quality program.
Why high-quality instructional materials?
A growing body of research shows that, in addition to the influence of teachers, curriculum has a significant effect on student learning. Quality curriculum is also a great tool for teachers: it saves them time and enables them to focus on interacting with their students. See what the research says about high-quality instructional materials, or HQIM.

Beyond all-green ratings from reviewers at EdReports.org or a Tier 1 designation from the Louisiana Department of Education, what does high-quality curriculum look like in real classrooms? How does it come to life for teachers and students? Here are five fundamentals of how we think about it at Amplify.
