It’s Being Done!

HOWIT’S BEING DONE: Urgent Lessons from Unexpected Schools

Karin Chenoweth

Quality Measures, March 12, 2010

slide14

Here’s what Karin Chenoweth has to say:

For the past year or so, I have been specifically looking at the question of leadership of these schools, and I’ve been asked to share some of what I’ve been learning

I am only interested in schools with students that the education world generally considers to be “challenging.”

But I would argue that these are the schools the entire education world should be paying attention to.

I call the schools I write about “It’s Being Done schools” to mark them as schools where the work of educating all children is being done.

what s an it s being done school
What’s an “It’s Being Done” School?

An “It’s Being Done” school is one that is either very high achieving or rapidly improving and has substantial enrollments of students from low-income families or students of color or both.

These are schools that are, generally speaking, not expected to be high performing.

But they are.

In the words of Karin Chenoweth, In essence, principals in “It’s Being Done” schools set the expectation that every student will achieve—and then establish the conditions in which that can happen.

slide40

Principals focus teachers and staff on what they can change, rather than what they can’t.What they can’t change:

Pre-natal care

Low birth-weight

Parental drug use

Neighborhood Crime Rates

Karin Chenoweth

what they can change

What they can change:

How they use time

Quality of instruction

School environment and atmosphere

slide42

Principals recognize and act on the critical importance of teachers:They hire carefullyThey assign carefullyHelp teachers improveKarin Chenoweth

Principals make sure teachers focus closely on instruction by:

Scheduling carefully to permit teacher collaboration and individual instruction.

Ensuring that curriculum is closely aligned to standards by reviewing lesson plans, assignments, and assessments.

Karin Chenoweth

slide44
To sum up: The leaders in “It’s Being Done” schools expect their teachers to teach and their students to learn and they create the environment that supports teaching and learning.

going beyond school leadership
Going Beyond School Leadership

Leadership is foremost in establishing a culture of teaching and learning in a school. Without it even the best teachers cannot function to their fullest potential. Now that Illinois has developed newly defined expectations for the preparation and ongoing career development of school leaders, it is time to look at how the State prepares its teachers. How can we prepare teachers who will address the needs of “each” child in order to optimize individual learning?

looking at teaching standards
Looking at Teaching Standards

  • Focused on Literacy (Elementary and Secondary)
  • Focused on needs of Special Education, ELL/Bilingual, Gifted
