One key ingredient in your recipe for success is a series of lesson plans we call LoTi Lessons that align with your statewide test specifications, the Common Core Curriculum Standards, and 21st Century Skills. LoTi Investigations are specific and targeted interventions that help contextualize student understanding of fundamental math and literacy concepts by turning up the H.E.A.T. (Higher order thinking, Engaged learning, Authentic connections, Technology use) on student learning.
LoTi Lessons are available for elementary (Grades 3-5) and intermediate (Grades 6-8) Mathematics and Language Arts Literacy.
Achieving student academic success and improving teacher effectiveness cannot be accomplished with a single solution, but instead requires a series of complementary strategies, frameworks, and resources aimed at improving student achievement.The H.E.A.T. Walkthrough Protocol enables districts to determine the fidelity of classroom alignment to district instructional initiatives, H.E.A.T. (Higher order thinking, Engaged learning, Authentic connections, Technology use), Digital Age Best Practices, and state mandates and requirements (e.g., New Jersey CAPA (Collaborative Assessment for Planning and Achievement), Pennsylvania Common Core Standards).
