Through the years the TRU team has partnered with a number of R&D projects and school districts. Our approach to instructional improvement involves multi-directional tool sharing and development. For example, the Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative piloted the Formative Assessment Lessons developed by the Shell Centre in partnership with TRU and others, the first version of the TRU Observation Guide was constructed by the San Francisco Unified School District in the context of our collaborative work with the SERP Institute, and many of the TRU tools have been refined thanks to the helpful observations of our partners.
This section lists four partner organizations and some of their broader contributions. We identify specific tools that emerged from our collaborations.
