To prevent learning loss and accelerate learning in any context, consider specific strategies for Math, Early Reading, Reading Comprehension, and Science.
To accelerate learning, LEAs can:
(Tools and resources from this section were created with support and inspiration from the Learning Accelerator, the TNTP Learning Acceleration Guide, Instruction Partners’ Guidance for Accelerating Student Learning, and CCSSO’s Restart and Recovery Tools. Links for each are provided in the sections that follow.)
These assessments can be folded into daily lessons (e.g., checklists, sampling dictation responses, monitoring of student work) and should be used to adjust instruction.
