ANet is a nonprofit dedicated to the premise that every child in America deserves an excellent education and the opportunities it provides. We pursue our vision of educational equality in America by helping schools boost student learning with great teaching that is grounded in standards, informed by data, and built on the successful practices of educators around the country.

Introducing ANet’s “Lessons From the Field”

ANet blog

As a mission-driven nonprofit organization, our primary concern is helping ensure equitable opportunity for all students.

Working alongside schools, we’ve learned that great teaching is grounded in standards, data, and insights shared among educators. We believe a blog can help us make a difference by spreading the ideas and effective practices of educators we work with.

We’re proud of the expertise our team has built over our ten years, and we'll be featuring contributions from ANetters across the org on topics in which they’ve immersed themselves.

Help us spread opportunity for all students: please share posts that you find valuable with your colleagues. And please add your thoughts in the comments: we would love this blog to facilitate knowledge-sharing in all directions.

Introducing ANet’s “Lessons From the Field”

Jeff Odell

by John Maycock

After over ten years of working with hundreds of systems and schools across the country, we want to ensure that many of our best tools, resources, and organizational knowledge are shared beyond our partner schools and passed along to all educators.

As a mission-driven nonprofit, we want to contribute as much as we can to increasing opportunity for all students, whether or not they attend a partner school.

Our team has been inspired by the successful educator practices we’ve observed—the most effective leadership moves to support teacher development and instructional practices that propel students toward college and career readiness. Now we’re sharing those ideas through our “Lessons From the Field” project.

We’ve organized these lessons, some of which you've already seen as blog posts, in a new section of our website by our main areas of focus with school leaders—everything from harnessing the power of formative assessments to fostering a culture of adult learning.

We’ve also made it a point to weave in guidance and practical tips that support what can be the trickiest part of change—the actual on-the-ground implementation of ideas.

As we continue to uncover brights spots across our partner schools, we’ll add new lessons to this site to highlight the work they’re doing to help students succeed.

I hope you’ll take these resources and share them with others, try them out with your teams, and find ways to make them even better. They’re for you—educators who are working hard to improve teaching and learning for all students.

John is the president and co-founder of ANet.
