CUrriculum RAtings by TEachers (CURATE)


Providing students and teachers with access to stronger curricular materials can be a powerful way to narrow opportunity gaps and accelerate student learning at scale. Yet Massachusetts school and district leaders say they often lack the time and information necessary to make well-informed decisions about curriculum. As a result, teachers are left scrambling to find good materials or develop them from scratch.

The CURATE project is DESE's response to this opportunity and need. Our goal is to make it easier for schools and districts to lay a foundation of great curricular materials in every classroom, so that teachers can focus on making those materials work for the students they know best.
