The SOAR Teaching Frames and associated rubrics were developed by a team of researchers led by Susan P. O’Hara, from REEd at UC Davis, Robert Pritchard, and Debi Pitta, from EPF for teaching. This team collaborated on the design and development of the frames with stakeholders groups, including teacher leaders, administrators, literacy experts, education researchers and more. We have trained an expert team of 30 facilitators to support professional learning and local implementation of the frames.
