Addressing Unfinished Learning
To assist teachers with the implementation of the IQWST curriculum, the Louisiana Guides to Implementation provide guidance regarding how IQWST units correlate with the Louisiana Student Standards for Science (LSSS). The IQWST curriculum provides ample instructional guidance for teachers. The Guides go a step further to point out places in which teachers may need to make strategic decisions considering student needs and time availability.
ONPAR is a U.S. Department of Education funded project, and partner to Activate Learning, developing computerized classroom assessments to support teaching and assessing students’ knowledge of complex mathematics and science. These assessments integrate into IQWST classrooms, and are appropriate for use with all students, using engaging multi-media content to greatly reduce accessibility barriers for English learners and other students who struggle with language-heavy traditional tests.
To support implementation, we offer a variety of in-person and virtual professional learning opportunities including live and recorded webinars and a library of resources.
