Overcome Instructional Challenges During COVID-19 Distance Learning: 
Manage Your Classroom, Teach Virtually and Close Equity Gaps

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the largest disruption of education ever, with research predicting up to one year of learning loss for students in poverty and African American students.1
According to EdWeek,
 student engagement is down by more than half and nearly 3 out of 4 teachers are not able to focus on delivering standards-aligned instruction during e-learning.

Now more than ever, teachers need to be able to deliver effective virtual core instruction.

Now is the time to power up your tier 1 core instruction.

Here’s how LSI is working with districts to transform virtual core instruction with a focus on accelerating learning, increasing engagement, and most importantly – closing history’s largest achievement gaps.
