    • Iowa AIW ConsortiumThis consortium provides AIW practitioners with services and resources to continue to network and grow with others moving toward educational reform. 
    • Teaching for Authentic Intellectual Work This manual is designed to encourage teacher reflection that carefully considers the kinds of intellectual challenges and expectations they promote in lessons, assignments and assessments, instruction, and the corresponding student work. The standards and scoring criteria in this manual are based on years of research and work with teachers in schools. They are intended to help teachers to collaboratively discuss, provide feedback, and improve their practice in ways that will build their common understanding and enhance student learning.
