Implementation and Effects of LDC and MDC in Kentucky Districts
Since adopting new college- and career-ready standards (CCRS), many districts throughout Kentucky have evolved to meet the demands of a more rigorous set of expectations, all of which aim to bolster student success. This brief summarizes the early success of two tools Kentucky districts have used to support the transition: Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) and Mathematics Design Collaborative (MDC).
When many of us think of “tutoring”, we picture the “homework help” model, where a student brings assignments for a tutor to coach them through. However, this type of model is not what every student needs to deeply learn new concepts. In fact, an effective tutoring program often looks very different.
