The CI4E Resource Hub offers guided pathways, a unique learning tool where individuals or teams examine the role of equity in their continuous improvement practices by answering self-reflection and scaled equity questions. After completing a pathway, you will receive a customized list of resources that meet your education team’s needs along the CI process.
How to Use Guided Pathways
1. Select a stage
Teams begin by choosing among the six continuous improvement stages based on the unique needs of your team and the communities you serve, and the education and social inequities in your school or district.
2. Select an area
Each stage is divided into unique areas that connect equity work from the individual to the team and community level. Some stages also contain a fourth area.
Area 1: Representation
Examine your worldviews, biases, and how you engage and learn from the communities you serve.
Area 2: Structure
Examine how your education team’s design, leadership, and power dynamics support or hinder equity work and the engagement of the school or district communities you serve.
Area 3: Process
Examine how you and your team reach decisions, solve problems and engage with data.
3. Answer equity questions
Answer equity-focused reflection and scaled equity questions for each area. This process can be completed individually or as a team.
4. Access your list of recommended resources
Once you respond to the questions in the area, you will receive a list of recommended resources to help reframe your continuous improvement efforts to meet equity goals. Resources are listed by “High Importance,” “Important,” or “Supplemental” based on the needs and priorities of your team.
