After 24 years in the K-12 education space, Achieve has shut its doors. Read the statement from Michael Cohen, President of Achieve here.
Our website www.achieve.org will remain available through December 31, 2020.
Former Achieve science team members have founded the NextGenScience project at WestEd where they will continue working with educators and partners across the nation to improve the quality of science education. Please visit their website and @NextGenScience to learn more about their work. They will continue to serve as stewards of the NGSS, sharing resources with the field through the nextgenscience.org website, NGSSNow newsletter, and @OfficialNGS.
All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
In State Support for Open Educational Resources: Key Findings from Achieve's OER Institute, one of the key challenges identified for the use of open educational resources (OER) in classrooms at scale is a lack of knowledge and awareness about OER among educators. To assist states and districts in communicating about OER, Achieve developed the following resources with feedback from OER Institute states. This suite of materials includes sample key messages about OER, sample presentation slides and a sample survey to gauge knowledge and awareness about OER. Each of these resources are intended to be modified by state and district leaders in order to fit local contexts. All resources are licensed with a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license.
