EDC approaches middle school reform from many angles and in many fields
We collaborate with teachers and students to design curricular materials that foster
academically rigorous, inquiry-based learning in many disciplines including mathematics,
science, and health.
Our professional development programs provide teachers with ongoing educational
opportunities by joining study in the content areas with effective instructional
strategies. We support teachers as they become better mentors, coaches, and learners.
We work school- and district-wide, developing partnerships with teachers and
administrators as they redesign middle schools to be more academically challenging and
socially responsive institutions..
Research to Practice
Underlying all our work with middle schools is a solid foundation of research that is
continuously tested and refined in the classroom.
