Barriers During Implementation • Need for clarification of roles for all LTP team members • Initial reluctance of teachers to voluntarily become a part of the small learning community • Difficulty in establishing an effective procedure for managing the Indistar plan to ensure buy-in from stakeholders

  12. Goals for 2011-12 • Raise student achievement in Mathematics by: • Ensuring that students have a secure grasp of basic concepts before attempting to move on • Revising work regularly that has been completed in previous weeks to aid students’ retention of mathematical concepts • Placing more emphasis on teaching the technical language of mathematics so that students understand what they are being asked to do • Improve the quality of teaching and learning by ensuring that all teachers: • Share specific lesson objectives with students in ways that ensure that students understand what they are to learn, and then assess how far they have succeeded • Use a wide variety of teaching strategies and effective questioning techniques to actively engage and maintain the interest of their students • Plan and deliver lessons to specifically meet students’ different learning styles and achievement levels

  13. Goals for 2011-12 (Continued) • Help students to play a greater part in their own learning and the life of the school by: • Providing more small group problem-solving, collaborative, independent and investigative learning tasks • Establishing a functioning student council to encourage student voice and increase involvement in the development of the school
