The pandemic and the unplanned shift to remote learning have widened the learning gap for many students in our state. The department created this webpage on accelerated learning to house a variety of resources and tools on this topic designed to assist educators in their efforts to fill student learning gaps.
Accelerated learning keeps students moving forward on their intended grade-level trajectories by strategically preparing them for success in current grade-level content. Acceleration focuses on teaching only what must be learned, at a given level, instead of trying to teach everything that a student did not learn in a previous grade or grades. Acceleration requires teachers to identify crucial content that they need to teach and that students need to learn so that students can access current grade-level material.
The resources and tools available by clicking on the buttons below will grow and expand over time as additional documents and links are added.
