PA Roadmap: Focus on Effective Instruction


The 2020–21 school year presents a unique set of opportunities and challenges due to the disruption to instruction in spring 2020 as well as the uncertainty as the school year unfolds. Educators know that every school year there are students who require support in addressing unfinished learning from prior grades, a challenge that will be felt more prominently in the 2020–21 school year.

 The Roadmap Focus on Effective Instruction guidance documents are designed to identify and define areas of high-level focus in content areas supported by key PA Academic Standards and offer guidance as to where instruction should occur to meet 2020-2021 critical grade level expectations of the standards.

 Guidance documents are available for

  • English Language Arts
  • Mathematics, Science
  • Social Studies
  • Technology Education
  • Driver Education

 Other aspects of the PA Roadmap – including social and emotional learning, instructional delivery, and profession learning – are available on PDE’s website: Creating Equitable School Systems: A Roadmap for Education Leaders.
