Thanks to a grant from the All Points North Foundation, Breakthrough Collaborative has updated its academic curriculum in all four subject areas – literature, writing, math, and science. The new curriculum includes updated materials and resources, assessment tools for all subject areas and grades so teachers can monitor students’ learning, differentiated practice opportunities in math so students at all levels can continue to grow, and a new literature text, The Other Wes Moore, so teachers have more options in tailoring the curriculum to the community’s needs. Last summer, 593 teaching fellows at 19 affiliates used these new resources as they taught a collective 2,950 students. The new materials received positive feedback from from leaders across the Collaborative who appreciated the opportunity to track local growth and differentiate instruction. We are grateful to the All Points North Foundation for making this work possible, and we’re excited to continue to refine our curriculum in the years to come.
