18 Students Make Connections!

19 This is the first thing I've learned that changed my teaching practices, and when I used SIM with my students, I saw my students' unit test scores go up at least 25%. ELA Teacher

20 I was reluctant at first – is this just another fad? But when I tried it I found my students were really improving quickly. Those students who didnt learn well from a book can learn this way – all of them do. As Ive used more and more routines, the students have gotten better and better. Now Im a total convert to SIM. – Math Teacher

21 Last year and before I made 70s or below in all of my classes, but now I am making all As & Bs -6th Grade Student

22 Keys to Sustainability Advocates at all levels are needed: – Teachers – Coaches – School Leaders – District Staff – District Leadership

23 RAISE up Texas Scalability & Sustainability Create pool of certified professional developers both within districts and at the regional level Expand the base of materials and support resources for implementation at Region 13 Create professional learning community in which more experienced schools support new adopters Establish documented protocol for implementing SIM as a whole-school model on other campuses
