Elephant= emotional side of our brain
Rider= rational side of our brain
“In order to make progress toward a goal, you need the strength of the elephant. However, the rider gives the planning and direction.”
“Anytime the six-ton Elephant and the Rider disagree about which direction to go, the Rider is going to lose.”
In an inter-mixed group, take a look at our list we generated two weeks ago.
What can our “collective” rider direct (in our control) and which ones will exhaust the rider (out of our control)?
How can our bright spots help us solve the things in our control?
Where do we collectively want to spend our energy?
Script the critical moves
School Goal: Reading-Overall Reading Achievement will move from 74.4% to 76% in 2011 and to 80% in 2012.
Subgroups to be addressed include Hispanics (AYP) and Students with Disabilities.
Question being addressed by the stated goal:
In 4th grade, our 09-10 lowest skills were vocabulary and nonfiction as measured by CSAP (68% P/A). Our current group of students struggled with summarizing and sequencing skills on Acuity. 25% of 4th graders are on ILP’s. As 3rd graders, 73% were P/A.
76% of 4th graders will be proficient in reading as measured by the CSAP. (Achievement Goal)
Harmony and amazing feats are possible.
