Resources from Bridges Educator Online Update
Recently, we’ve been asked if the resources developed for the 2020-21 school year will be available in the future. Yes! Bridges educators will have access to all of these new materials beyond the 2020-21 school year. These resources will be useful if remote learning continues, but they also have value for in-person instruction. We are currently developing new Guidance Documents that include an updated scope and sequence and revised unit planners, as well as links to and suggestions for using the following resources:
- Assessment Screeners
- Digital Work Places (BES login required)
- Technology-Enhanced Activities (TEAs)
- Digital Scavenger Hunts
- Math at Home
- Master Materials Lists
- Number Corner Preview Videos
In fact, the only resources that will be retired are the grade-level webinars that were limited in scope to the 2020-21 school year.
We intend to release the revised Guidance Documents for 2021-22 before the end of April, to ensure districts, schools, and teachers have ample time to plan for next year. The updated guidance documents will continue to stress that students should have access to grade-level content and engagement with the major work of that grade. The updated documents will help you assess and address areas of need as they arise within the grade-level scope and sequence, rather than devoting instructional time to teaching previous grades’ content at the beginning of the year. Our guidance is based on recommendations from The New Teacher Project’s Learning Acceleration Guide, which reflects the latest research on what works for raising student achievement by addressing unfinished learning.
We will announce the release of the revised Guidance Documents via email and through the News & Announcements section of the Bridges Educator Site (login required).
We hope this information helps as you begin thinking about how to plan for next year.
