This is the second in our four-part Coffee Chat webinar series on the state of the instructional materials market.

The availability of standards-aligned instructional materials continues to increase. In 2021, 51% of English language arts and 44% of math core materials reviewed by EdReports met expectations for alignment. Yet, only 40% of math teachers and 26% of ELA teachers report using a quality curriculum even once a week. During this Coffee Chat, participants will hear directly from educators about the key factors that have influenced their curriculum decisions, and how high-quality materials deliver not only grade-level content but also meet the diverse learning needs of today’s students.
