Children who have the opportunity to participate in high-quality early learning experiences are more likely to be ready for school and tend to have stronger social-emotional and academic skills. The Advancing Effective Interactions and Instruction (AEII) initiative helps Virginia school leaders and teachers focus on three key ingredients – curricula, teacher-child interactions, and instruction – that we know make a difference in children’s development and learning.
What We've Learned
In just over a year, AEII has helped Virginia’s school leaders better understand the quality of classroom interactions and instruction in VPI classrooms across the Commonwealth.
The Impact of High-Quality Supports
Teachers, parents, and children share why high-quality learning opportunities and professional development supports are critical to everyone’s success in the classroom.
