What tools and processes does the Suite include?
The e2 Instructional Practice Suite™ includes four tools and processes, designed to work together in support of one, coherent vision:
The e2 Instructional Practice Framework™: The first resource in the Suite is the downloadable Framework, which provides the foundation for how and why instructional leaders should build a vision for instruction that is both essential and equitable. This Framework is just the beginning of the strategy—it is meant to be combined with other tools to put the knowledge into action in the classroom.

The e2 Learning Walk Tools™: The Learning Walk Tool, available in mathematics and literacy versions, gathers non-evaluative data to create a snapshot of the teaching and learning across classrooms and/or schools through a series of brief classroom visits. This tool intentionally focuses on students’ experiences in the classroom through the interactions between students, teachers, and content.

The e2 Coaching Toolkit™: The coaching tools and related coaching process form a set of resources that support the development of personalized growth in e2 classroom practice. This set of tools aims to humanize the coaching process, transforming instructional practice and amplifying student learning. Whether the tools are being used individually or together, they are flexible in nature and adaptable to any context.
The e2 Surveys and Interview Protocols™: This set of resources is designed to capture authentic perspectives of teachers and students that reflect the realities of classrooms. Too often, data collection processes focus solely on grade-level outcomes while neglecting the aspects of lived experiences that contribute to equitable instruction, which can’t be as easily quantified. These tools allow for an additional input into data collection processes that elevate the voices, leverage the assets, and honor the brilliance of students and teachers.
