Redesign classroom instruction to transform learning for both students and teachers!
Breakthrough presents a revolutionary new approach to educational reform, breaking away from the conventional paradigm to help educators create powerful, focused instruction that raises and sustains performance levels in the classroom.

Unique elements of the Breakthrough framework include:
- Improvement by design
- Assessment for learning
- Critical learning instructional paths
- Mapping instructional paths
- Smart use of data to drive instruction
