OUR DESIGN PROCESS

 

We create mirrors.

 

Collectively, with decades in the game, we’ve seen what it takes to truly engage scholars. As an organization, we all agree that the one-size-fits-all framework doesn’t work. We all believe in four core values: the story, the game, the show, and student response.

Our curriculum heightens the learning partnerships through culturally relevant stories (the story), interactive learning (the game), powerful engagement strategies (the show), and differentiated materials (the response).

Our instructional designers develop learning experiences that drive scholar-centered outcomes and your organization’s mission, forward.

Langston League instructional designers are dedicated to helping clients, serving grades 4-12, solve their specific instructional challenges with intentional culturally responsive methods.

In the last year, we’ve taken on traditional and non-traditional clients assiting with cultural competency through instructional design and professional development. Our clients include, but aren’t limited to: Medgar Evers College, Sunnyside Community Services, Google Code Next, Legacy, Pens of Power, Harlem Children’s Zone, Achievement First Schools, and more.

Each of our clients receives a Langston League instructional designer–trained under our core values (gamification, differentiation, narrative, and performance)–and content expert that builds your curriculum from start to finish!

Our individualized services include existing-curriculum evaluation and a custom proposal, as well as completed culturally responsive curriculum design, course development, and more.

Our clients rely on the expertise of our team of unconventional educators — most with years of experience in education — to take their scholars to the next level.

Here’s are some items to consider, before scheduling your consultation:

  1. Schedule a consultation: In one-hour, we’ll discuss your dream curriculum and we’ll assign the right curriculum designers and content experts for your organization. Do you know the scholars you’re teaching, their learning styles, and their needs? What is your end goal? How often do you imagine this course happening? What’s the timing? What texts do you envision your scholars reading? What’s the culminating project? Event?
  2. Our curriculum designers want to immerse themselves in your culture and observe your scholars and objectives so that we can recommend the best possible approach. Pick a day that we can spend time on site. Using our culturally responsive rubric, we’ll assess glimpses of:
    • Instruction alignment with learning outcomes
    • Learning partnerships
    • Use of culturally responsive instruction
    • Utilization of educational technology
    • Student engagement & more
  3.  Curriculum design focuses on the creation of an overall framework. Our curriculum designers will map content to learning objectives, with descriptions of recommended courses.
  4. We’ve created hundreds of courses. We are well versed in content creation and several disciplines. Our content experts include, but aren’t limited to: urban farming, urban planning, creative writing, UX Design, science, mathematics, health & wellness, college and career readiness, coding, robotics, hip-hop literacy, activism, history, music (instrumentation/production/chorus), entrepreneurship, and more! Each curriculum comes with a rubric for culminating events/projects; each lesson comes with educator scripting, student materials, suggested resources, and is unique to your programming.
  5. We’ll be sure to create a full data report utilizing case studies, National Common Core Standards growth/proficiency, and an overview. You’ll also receive access to all files digitally, for modification.

We only take on 3-5 clients, per quarter, and we’re almost full!
