HLTP Infographic

You need to know that the evidence-based practices you use are effective and indispensable to your student’s outcomes. High-leverage practices (HLTPs) bring together education research and instructional practice to offer teachers and students trusted, effective, pedagogically sound strategies. Through HLTPs, you can promote measurable growth in learner outcomes while strengthening your own teaching practice.

All good teaching starts with meaningful lesson objectives. Our first TESOL ME Series, Developing Meaningful Lesson Objectives, will help you craft clear and meaningful objectives as the cornerstone to powerful and effective lesson plans. Tailored to the unique needs of K-12 teachers, professors, or educators in adult and workforce development, choose the context that is most relevant to you and the learners you support.


Digital Badging

Receive a digital badge for each module you complete. As additional topics become available, you will be able to attend and complete the entire series of 6 modules and receive a certificate of completion in High-Leverage Teaching Practices along with a Series Completed badge.
