Teachers are agents for delivering deeper instruction that challenges, engages, and empowers students towards purposeful and effective learning. Despite the real tensions between breadth of coverage and depth of learning (exacerbated by disruptions to teaching and learning), teachers can deliver on learning that lasts through instruction that puts students in active roles - grappling with intriguing problems, reflecting on learning, and presenting their thinking. Leaders ensure high-quality instruction through supportive structures for professional learning and sharing, clear messaging and expectations, and using data effectively.
