Are Your Instructional Materials Aligned?
As a local control state, districts and schools in Wisconsin make important decisions regarding instructional materials. There are growing efforts to support this decision-making process. EdReports is one tool to determine whether instructional materials are aligned to Wisconsin’s academic standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics. View their rubrics and ratings of specific curricula. If your instructional materials are not included on EdReports, see the Instructional Materials Evaluation Tool from Achieve as another tool to use.
OER Fully-Aligned Instructional Materials
These instructional materials are both openly licensed, meaning the materials are mostly or completely free, and fully aligned to standards. There are other collections of instructional materials aligned to standards that schools and districts can choose to purchase but that don’t appear here because they are not open source.
