Total Instructional Alignment (TIA) is a process that has proven to be a key strategy in creating high achieving classrooms, schools and school districts. The Total Instructional Alignment process is comprehensive: From Standards to Student Success! It includes alignment of standards, curriculum, instruction, and assessment.
The hands-on integrative process assists teachers and administrators in developing an in-depth understanding of the alignment process: What it means, why it is important for all students, what it looks like in schools and in individual classrooms, and most importantly, how to achieve it in every school and in every classroom.
Because the TIA process is comprehensive, integrated, and hands-on, student achievement within and among districts, schools, and individual educators who have NOT participated in formal TIA training is at risk. Although increased student achievement is being found in classrooms where TIA is implemented and followed, it is important to understand that training on, and participation in, the process is fundamental to its success.
