Skill and drill is no substitute for powerful, engaging lessons.

The four walls of a classroom won’t be enough to re-engage your students. There is urgency to act, but we can’t let that urgency lure us to the quickest fix. Repetitive skills practice is only going to disengage students further. Your teachers need high-quality, high-interest content to build lessons that create connections, convey a sense of purpose and motivate students to learn.
