Translating Great Materials into Great Instruction

Quality materials can be a game-changer, but—ask any educator in Texas—it takes more than a box of books to support teaching and learning. If you are a leader involved in the selection, launch, or support of a curriculum, this website is for you.

The Framework

Why did the same materials positively transform instruction in one system and cause heartburn in another? Instruction Partners set out to understand what the success stories had in common and discovered a series of replicable leadership actions—a framework for effective implementation. Enter where you are and use what works. Each step has starter resources and notes to help your team avoid common pitfalls.


This workbook is designed to help a school or system leadership team work through the implementation process together. Assemble your team, print or download the workbook, find your starting point, and dig in together.



The Curriculum Support Guide was created by Instruction Partners, an education nonprofit that works shoulder to shoulder with Texas leaders to support great teaching and accelerate student learning. You can learn more about us here.

What Texas Leaders are Saying

Instruction Partners has allowed me to be reflective about how we implement materials. I now think about my role in how we use curriculum and how we impact students. I now ask myself: What moves will I make to help teachers, which in turn helps kids, which in turn helps the whole community?
