ED Resources: Effective and Engaging Instruction

December 3, 2020


Dear Intergovernmental stakeholders,


This year, providing effective and engaging instruction to meet the individual needs of every student will look different whether it is presented remotely or in-person. Effective instruction is a means of providing knowledge in a systemic way that helps students intellectually engage and advance toward content mastery.


The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE), Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), and Institute of Education Sciences (IES) are pleased to share resources to support educators in providing effective and engaging instruction. Attached are letters to states and school and district leaders with featured resources, followed by websites and offices that could provide additional support.


We ask that you share these letters with your colleagues, schools, and districts as you deem appropriate. To view similar resources, please visit Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE) ResourcesOffice of Special Education Programs (OSEP) Continuity of Learning During COVID-19, and Institute of Education Sciences (IES) Evidence-Based Resources.
