It Starts With Me!
How would you describe effective teaching?
Does your school or district have a shared understanding of what kind of teaching you need in your classrooms?
If yes, write down the shared vision.
If not, should you? When a school does not have a shared understanding of effective teaching, what is the consequence on student learning?
Why did you choose MAP?
What do you hope to achieve?
Smaller Goals-Measures of Success
How are you going to get there?
What will it look like?
How will you know you are making progress?
Meet the needs of all students
Capitalize on the knowledge and experience of your colleagues
Work as a team
Do we have a shared vision?
How has using data provided opportunities for sharing with my colleagues?
Do I see evidence of student growth?
Have we created a cycle of continuous improvement?
Begin challenging your own assumptions.
Your assumptions are your windows on the world.
Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won’t come in.
THANK YOU for all you do for kids!
