Accelerated Learning Basics
Rather than spend weeks re-teaching material from previous grade levels, Gateway Middle School faculty are approaching this year with an approach based around Accelerated Learning: strategically identifying the most essential skills students need catching up on to succeed in classwork going forward, presented in context with grade-level content that’s scaffolded so as to catch them up as quickly as possible.
This Curriculum Planning Guide walks you through that process for your grade level and subject, helping guide your thinking as you design and implement your early units.
This resource is adapted from TNTP’s Covid-19 School Response Toolkit and The Teaching Lab, both of which are chock full of useful tools for administrators and classroom teachers alike.
