Our Teaching and Learning Framework
Achieve more than a year’s worth of growth by applying research-based learning strategies.
Maximize every child’s learning potential.
The Learning-Focused Instructional Framework trains educators to apply the right research-based learning strategies in the right situations. That way, students can excel, test scores can rise, and schools can foster a culture of achievement.
Connect the dots
Our teaching and learning framework integrates different exemplary practices. That way, teachers can finally connect the dots between varying methods and apply them effectively.
When teachers serve students more effectively, performance improvement follows. With Learning-Focused, you’re empowering your teachers to improve your schools.
By personalizing instruction and focusing on grade-level expectations, teachers using instructional frameworks engage students and encourage higher-level performance.

Here’s how our
instructional framework breaks down
By connecting standards to instruction, the first stage provides a path to effective teaching and high-performing classrooms.
In the second stage, teachers focus on rigor, learning activities, grade-level assignments, and assessments.
Catch kids up and help them perform at grade level. The third stage is all about ensuring students are successful, so they enjoy a whole year’s worth of growth.
Combine and implement exemplary practices.
At Learning-Focused, we’re all about synthesis. Our instructional framework trains teachers to synthesize proven, effective learning strategies. We also show them how to use those strategies in specific situations with specific students.
Ongoing support helps make your schools successful.
Effective professional development is continuous professional development – not “one and done” training sessions with no follow-up. Our approach includes purposeful, ongoing development, so teachers master the framework with our team at their side.
