This 26-minute  webinar introduces the first Instructional Priority Area: Strengthen Core Instruction.  This webinar is intended for school leaders and their Instructional Leadership Teams (ILTs).

The NYCDOE Instructional Leadership Framework (ILF) requires that we engage with the instructional practices of Advanced Literacy and that we do so with Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education as our driving force to ensure high quality and equitable instruction for every student. This guide for school leaders and teams is designed to serve as a quick start to the tenets of Core Instruction outlined in the book Teaching Advanced Literacy Skills: A Guide for Leaders in Linguistically Diverse Schools.

The New York State Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education (CRSE) framework helps educators create student-centered learning environments that: affirm racial, linguistic and cultural identities; prepare students for rigor and independent learning, develop student' abilities to connect across lines of difference; elevate historically marginalized voices; and empower students as agents of social change. The New York State guidelines for culturally responsive-sustaining education are grounded in a vision of an education system that creates:

  • Students who experience academic success
  • Students who are sociopolitically conscious and socioculturally responsive
  • Students who have a critical lens through which they challenge inequitable systems of access, power, and privilege.
