September 2018 – Cambridge, MA – Educators from coast to coast and around the world now have access to a fresh collection of 100 free instructional strategies from BetterLesson to make a greater impact in the classroom, just in time for the new school year.

These high-impact instructional strategies come from BetterLesson’s professional development practice, BetterLesson Coaching. Each strategy provides step-by-step guidance and ready-to-use resources to support teacher growth in areas supported by BetterLesson’s instructional coaches, such as student-centered teaching, project-based learning, and culturally responsive teaching methods.

The strategies provide guidance for a variety of classroom activities and strategic interventions, such as starting the day with a Morning Meeting to build classroom culture, providing differentiated group support with Mild, Medium, and Spicy Strategic Grouping, and celebrating student accomplishments with a Positive News Board.
