BELIEF SYSTEMS: Are You Really Standards-Based?Tough questions

  • Do you believe all students can learn?

  • Should there be separate expectations for our students?

  • Are we really standards-based?

  • Are we internally aligned?

  • What role does transfer play in your teaching equation?

  • Who is accountable for eliminating opportunity gaps between students?


Belief system shifts

BELIEF SYSTEM SHIFTS:

  • Shift from “Bell Curve” to “Standards Based”

  • Shift from “Fixed Time/Varied Standards” to “Fixed Standards/Varied Time”

Culture creating high performance high accountability systems to maximize student achievement

“When it comes to the academic expectations of our students, especially minority and/or economically disadvantaged students in urban, inner city settings, we are more segregated now than we were prior to Brown vs. Board of Education – physical segregation”

Jonathon Kozol, Shame of the Nation


The power of expectations

The Power of Expectations

  • Kids, our students, are NOT the problem…they typically will do what we expect them to do. (minimum?)

  • What do we expect of the “big kids” – the adults in the equation? (minimum?)

  • What is “our” minimum?

  • What do we tolerate in our culture?

  • What do we EXPECT?
