The key to building professional learning communities that share effective instructional strategies for the classroom to improve student achievement.
Objectives 1. Create and execute a plan to implement the Instructional Learning Cycle during the academic year. 2. Utilize the specific components of the Instructional Learning Cycle to dramatically improve instruction in your building. 3. Measure adult implementation and impact on student learning from the Instructional Learning Cycle. 4. Organize and execute a School Support Team meeting designed to share results of the first Instructional Learning Cycle.
Roles and Assignments Assistant Superintendent Principal School Improvement Facilitator Intervention Specialist Teacher (1) Teacher (2) Teacher (3) Teacher (4?) This team will identify the teachers who will participate in the first cycle of ILC implementation.
Task 1: School Support Team Using your data and knowing about the strategic school design changes that are also being implemented in your building indicated in your goals, objectives, strategies, and activities of your school improvement plan, think about and plan for ILC implementation for the entire academic-year. Chart your plan to include the information below: Where will you begin for the first cycle? How will you continually increase the sphere of influence of the ILC in the building? What will the plan look like for each quarter of the academic year? Select the teachers you want to work with by name/subject in the first cycle? How will you sell this process to them? You will be meeting with these teachers in just a few minutes.
The Launch: Pre-Planning Share your plan with the teachers you’ve chosen to include in the first cycle. The SST will teach these teachers specifically how to implement all the components of the Instructional Learning Cycle. These teachers will know nothing about the ILC and this is a new and foreign way of doing instruction. The SST will coach them through the entire process. Task: The SST will coach the teachers through the Pre-Planning Phase of the ILC process. Next, the SST will assist teachers in recording their data from the Pre-Assessment on the the Classroom Results Pre-Assessment form.
The Launch: Instructional-Planning Task: The SST will coach the teachers through the Instructional Planning Phase of the ILC process. Next, the SST will assist teachers in recording their data from the Post- Assessment and will record the data on the the Classroom Results Post- Assessment form.
The Launch: Follow-Up Task: The SST will coach the teachers through the Follow-Up Phase of the ILC process. Next, the SST will assist teachers in planning how they will present their ILC Cycle formally to the SST.
Process Review Define or review the building process What does the Instructional Learning Cycle process look like in our building? Who is participating at this time? Reports from individual teacher teams on their ILC experience Instructional Strategy Implementation data (adult actions) Impact data (student learning) Reflection on instructional practice Next steps for ILC implementation
