Opportunity to learn refers to the extent to which teachers dedicate instructional time and content coverage to the intended curriculum using a range of cognitive processes, instructional practices, and grouping formats. This article describes the My Instructional Learning Opportunities Guidance System, a research-based online teacher log that allows teachers to plan and keep track of their instruction related to content standards, review feedback reports that are based on their own instructional data, and communicate and collaborate with colleagues to promote students’ opportunity to learn. A working example from an actual teacher's instructional data is used to illustrate My Instructional Learning Opportunities Guidance System and its potential to facilitate improved instruction for students with disabilities.
