Successfully navigating the obstacles

Successfully Navigating the Obstacles

  • District Priorities for Professional Development Time

  • Lacking Supportive Conditions for Successful PLCs (time, resources, shared vision)

  • Changes in district leadership and overall staffing

  • Scary to find out we don’t deeply understand what we teach- SMART goals helped


Imprint

Imprint

  • Essential Questions and Enduring Understandings guiding our teaching

  • Collaborative study through PLCs are now a preferred form of Professional Development

  • Understanding of why standards matter and the ability to unpack the standards

  • What we’ve learned in Connect-Ed is directly applicable to our classroom environments

  • PLC protocol and Big Idea influence on Response to Intervention and PAC process


Impact

Impact

  • Curriculum Documents that reflect Big Idea thinking

  • Teachers are more comfortable with the big ideas in math and science and how they develop throughout grade levels


The future

The Future

  • Additional cross grade level CONNECT-ED PLCs to begin in September

  • Focus on Student Work to impact teacher work.

  • Big Idea Professional Development as new curriculum is introduced and implemented

  • Possible creation of Mini-BIMs to provide opportunities to learn content expected in Common Core standards

  • Teachers requesting CONNECT-ED style PLCs for Language Arts

  • Possible Consortium networking around common tasks and assessments that develop the Big Ideas for students
