What it Means to Be a Champion
The Roadmap and supporting documents were derived through extensive collaboration and compromise, as we need a shared focus to move forward. The EAD framework is flexible and provides significant room for different and diverse experiments with implementation. We celebrate the anticipated diversity of approaches. Therefore, support of EAD should not be construed as complete agreement of the entirety of recommendations or Report, but the overarching purpose and approach put forth. Participating organizations engage with EAD in the following ways in accordance with their respective missions:
- Suggest, participate, and contribute to events such as webinars, professional development, and office hours;
- Share the EAD approach and work products with their respective audiences;
- Help identify resources (curriculum options, best practices, etc., existing or new) that support EAD implementation at the classroom, school, and district level; and/or
- Connect interested schools and teachers who share our civic mission and may be interested in using the EAD as a tool in achieving that mission.
