4 Non-Negotiable Beliefs/Attitudes for Staff “We are not through teaching until they have all learned” Teachers must develop a mental model of the standards and work collaboratively to ensure effective instruction We must know what students have learned and what they have yet to learn, then we must intervene to ensure student learning
