Co-Design Resources

It’s about collaboration, research, equity, and action together. Explore co-designed resources from the CREATEd team.

Co-designed resources reflect the knowledge and experiences of researchers, educators, communication and design experts, and other stakeholders. They draw on high quality research and are useful and relevant for achieving greater equity in educational policy and practice. And they are all free and publicly available.

Dr. Jill Flynn and Dr. Bill Lewis are working with Taria Pritchett, a Mount Pleasant English teacher and Brandywine teacher of the year, and Casey Montigney, an English teacher at Shue-Medill Middle School and member of the Delaware Professional Standards Board, to support educators’ use of quad text sets to support social justice and racial equity.  Recognizing a need to more clearly incorporate issues of equity into the curriculum, the team built out a publicly available website of resources based on the 2017 article describing this approach.

Dr. Roderick Carey is joined by Anthony Phillps, pre-college success manager for TeenSHARP and Dawn Clarke, RTI coordinator and AVID teacher at Newark High School, in efforts to build knowledge and awareness of how to support the college aspirations of Black and Latino boys.  Informed by Dr. Carey’s series of articles between 2016 and 2019, the team designed a website with resources that address assumptions and challenge narratives about expectations and aspiration.

Dr. Erica Litke, assistant professor of education, is working with Anthony Reid, a teacher at Howard High School and the New Castle County Vo-Tech teacher of the year, and Michael Williams, a teacher at Great Oaks High School and member of the Rodel Teacher Network, to design instructional resources to support high quality algebra instruction.  Drawing on Dr. Litke’s recently published work, the team is collaborating around a digital tool that will help educators put research-based instructional routines into practice.
