The Quality Review-Promising Practices Library an ARIS Connect Community that houses resources, articles, videos, and artifacts aligned to each indicator of the Quality Review (QR) rubric. The goal of the QR-PPL is to support educators in understanding the expectations of the QR, to illustrate the rubric with a diversity of promising practices, and to facilitate connections among colleagues across the city. Some current practices include ELL Strategies, Setting Differentiated Learning Goals, Integrated Project Design, Professional Development Assessment Day and more!
One of the latest features in the QR-PPL is the Well Developed Classroom, a new monthly blog written to provide teachers with resources to support high quality instruction and assessment across classrooms. It is aligned to the well developed indicators in the Quality Review rubric. Each month, the blog will include details of a practice, the rationale behind the practice, relationships to QR indicators, and provide tools that educators can use to implement the practice.
