Instructional materials matter to Mississippi teachers. With high-quality instructional materials, Mississippi teachers can bring lessons to life and inspire their students to learn and grow.
TEACHING IS CHALLENGING; HIGH-QUALITY MATERIALS CAN MAKE IT EASIER.
Many schools do not provide teachers with instructional materials that meet student needs, and teachers must fill the gaps. 73% of U.S. teachers say they use materials found online more than they use hardcover textbooks. More than 93% of teachers report frequently using their own or locally developed materials.

Why is HQIM important?
HQIM can be used to identify students’ areas of strength and opportunities for growth, which are sequentially mapped and designed to prepare students to graduate ready for college and the workforce, educative for teachers, and accessible to students with differentiated needs.
