WA Core Advocates are committed to supporting higher academic achievement for all students. Currently, educators in the WA Core Advocate Network have recognized that some of the biggest opportunities for growth exist in focusing on:
- Making mathematical concepts more focused and coherent in order to meet the learning needs of all students
- Supporting students’ ability to access grade-level content knowledge and texts
Based on these goals, WA Core Advocates have designed and embarked on a campaign for ELA/literacy and math:
Apply Focus and Coherence to lessons to meet the learning the needs of all students.
Support all students in accessing grade-level content knowledge and texts.
