Nashville Teacher Residency encourages educators to use high-quality instructional materials that aid students in meeting college- and career-ready standards, with principles of learning science embedded into their design. This is driven by a desire to upend the traditional lack of rigorous grade-level content for students of color. Helping future teachers learn how to effectively identify and use high-quality materials instead of designing lesson plans from scratch can increase the likelihood that students will get access to knowledge and skills that can help them thrive in school, with the added bonus that it can lighten the planning load for new teachers.
