Competency Selection Who are the right people to implement the strategy? Training What learning opportunities and PD is needed? Coaching What ongoing support will be provided? Performance Assessment What will be done to monitor fidelity?
Organization What type of data systems are in place to collect implementation and impact data? Data-Driven Decision Making How will leadership support successful implementation of the strategy/activity? Leadership Support System Support What internal systems are in place to support the successful implementation of the strategy/ activity? Performance Assessment What processes are in place to evaluate if systems are fully functioning to support implementation?

What is an ILC? The Instructional Learning Cycle process is a defined structure that promotes collaboration and collective responsibility within a teacher team by setting up structures for short term cycles of improvement. *This will be a requirement for Focus and Priority schools during the implementation phase.
Instructional Learning Cycle (ILC) Collaborative short term process of instructional improvement Reflect on the quality of classroom instruction Focus teacher teams on implementation of instructional strategies from the School Improvement Plan and linked to a school-wide instructional priority
Within an ILC, teacher teams focus on a single instructional strategy related to standards Continuous ILCs signals purposeful and focused instructional improvements Provides teachers teams a process to monitor student achievement Instructional Learning Cycle (ILC)
Short cycles of improvement are meant to last 2-4 weeks Includes 3 collaborative meetings held by content area or grade level Each meeting provides an opportunity to – Reflect on the quality of instruction – Analyze implementation and impact data Instructional Learning Cycle (ILC)
Instructional Learning Cycles are linkable to… A school improvement plan: An instructional priority; and Content expectations or Common Core Standards
Common pre and post assessments (along with data analysis) Purposeful identification and implementation of research-based instructional strategy Collaborative instructional dialogue and reflection Key features of ILCs
Instructional Learning Cycle is guided by the following questions What do we want students to know and be able to do? How will students demonstrate that they have acquired the essential knowledge and skills? How will we agree on the criteria that we will use in judging the quality of student work, and can we apply the criteria consistently? How will we intervene for students who struggle and enrich the learning for students who are proficient? How will we use the evidence of student learning to improve our individual and collective professional practice?
Theory of Action If teacher teams engage in regular instructional dialogues around a data- informed instructional strategy, then the quality of classroom instruction will improve, and student learning will increase.
Steps When? Timeline Who? Person Responsible Evidence of Data (artifacts)? 1. Attend PDAugustMath DepartmentMaterials from PD 2. Implement geometric shapes hands on OctoberMath TeachersRecording Sheet 3. Administer and Analyze Assessment DecemberMath TeachersWill administer an oral geometric check for understanding, using a previously created rubric to define mastery, teachers will meet in their PLC/Department Meeting to discuss results. Teachers will record evidence in an excel spreadsheet. 40 Action Plans
