Most Importantly: We want everyone to have an overview of how the systems approach to learning will affect our classrooms and our campus during the 2012-2013 school year! Most Importantly: We want everyone to have an overview of how the systems approach to learning will affect our classrooms and our campus during the 2012-2013 school year!
The Systems Approach For the last two years we have used the systems approach with our department goals! Next year will bring the PDSA systems approach to our classrooms! PlanDoStudyAct
Using your red dot indicate the level of knowledge you have in how to utilize a Plan-Do-Study-Act Cycle to improve school and/or classroom processes. Take a moment to share with your table members where you put your dot and why. 1 Don’t even know what it is! Using a Consensogram Establish the Baseline… 2 Know what it stands for but don’t know why I should use it 3 Know what and why, but don’t know how 4 Ready to implement PDSA
For most of us, we have already unpacked our standards OR we are still exploring our new Common Core standards! If you are still working with new standards, it would be important to go through the unpacking process with your level or department members!
(We are more familiar with the phrase “unwrapping the standards” and unwrapping is EXACTLY the same as unpacking!)
High school learning requirements for statistics
What does this mean for Mountain Ridge? We will be visually and verbally sharing our learning standards in our classroom. We will be unpacking the standards for our most important learning objectives.
Vocabulary goals in a high school special education classroom for intellectually challenged students and students with autism.
High school culinary arts goals and learning results
What does this mean for Mountain Ridge? We will display our data charts in our classroom to monitor progress.
Continuous Classroom Improvement 2nd Edition Work with students to develop a class/course/program mission statement that aligns to learning requirements and reflects a commitment to closing the achievement gap. Step 4: Write and use a class, course, or program mission statement.

What does this mean for Mountain Ridge? We will create department mission statements with input from students. This process will take place during an AcaPrep period! If a teacher would like to create a class mission statement with the class working through the PDSA cycle, s/he can.
As we move through the PDSA cycle with our class period next year we will display the cycle in our classroom... The next few slides include some examples of how these look at some of our sister schools and other schools across the nation taking part in a systems approach to learning....
PLAN DO ACT STUDY The process we will display in our classroom...
Notice how this teacher posts the strategy bank (right of the PDSA) for students to select from when working on their PDSA cycle.

Step 1: How to clarify and communicate the learning requirements to students and their families. Step 2: How to publish and post a learning goal for a specific class/content area. Step 3: How to chart and analyze learning results for the class. Step 4: How to write and use a class, course, or program mission statement. Today we provided an overview of the first four steps of a systems approach to improve learning.... In the fall we will return to these steps, and explore the remaining four steps!
August 2012 – Our systems trainer will be providing specific training on the systems approach to the entire Mountain Ridge staff. (Our JSA trainer will also be back to work with us in October, November, and February!) Fall Semester 2012 (1 st Quarter) – Review steps 1-4, as well as create department mission statements. Fall Semester 2012 (2 nd Quarter) – We will complete 1 PDSA cycle with one class period. Spring Semester 2013 – We will complete 2 PDSA cycles with one class period. What are our next steps as a campus?
Want to know more about the systems approach? We have a training manual that we will use next school year. If you would like to check out the manual to review over the summer, just see Annette and she will check one out to you! There are incredible resources on Blackboard! We will eventually ask everyone to join the Systems Support Team (SST) class on Blackboard! You can do this at any time. On the Blackboard site you will find high school examples of the PDSA process in classrooms, additional resources, and tools! We will send you directions for how to join this class via email!

What this all comes down to is involving students in their learning process! So, let’s take a few minutes and hear from students how they bring the systems process to life in their classrooms!

Do you have any general questions or concerns about how we will be implementing the systems approach next year?
You will receive an email that includes the directions for how to sign up for the Systems Blackboard class, as well as how to check out one of the systems books from Annette!
