Agenda Day 1 Day 1 of Winter SIM is a monitoring experience Purpose of SIM, What you told us Student Voice Monitoring Through Implementation Monitoring Moment Cross-board, role-alike sharing
K-12 SIM Is … Is Not SIM IsSIM Is Not K-12 An opportunity to connect the work and understand the impact/influence it has in classrooms, schools, and the system. A session where participants get practical ideas for use in a classroom. System Implementation and Monitoring of the Board Improvement Plan for Student Achievement. Focused on developing specific subject content nor instructional strategies. Focused on the implementation and monitoring work of Supervisory Officers and their teams (elementary and secondary principals, system staff, teachers). An opportunity to build collective knowledge and make decisions as a team.
You told us … For Winter K-12 SIM you requested: Growth mindsets, grit, resilience Cross-board, like-role sharing Monitoring: what are other boards monitoring and how are they doing it Time for discussion Articles and videos Grade 9 applied strategies Interventions in mathematics Descriptive feedback as part of monitoring Use of qualitative data
Goals Inquire and co-learn about implementation and monitoring of your plan within your learning team Build and mobilize knowledge through outside and in-the-room thinking Build our capacity to monitor our progress and impact Consider how educator and student mind-sets influence our actions Support coherence building by connecting the work of the province and district with the schools
Video – Student Voice “The power of positive teacher-student relationships is critical for learning to occur.” p. 25 SEF
Team Conversation How is this example of student voice evidence and how can it be used as part of the monitoring process? In your role, how are you paying attention to student voice and how is it informing your work? “The single biggest factor in whether students try or give up, leave or stay is their sense that somebody in the school knows who they are and cares about what happens to them”
Steven Katz - Monitoring Engage in collective learning around challenges of practice so that understanding of those challenges grows deeper. Through investigation proposed solutions emerge that are then tested/monitored to see if they help. We want to see evidence of a permanent change in thinking and behaviour.
Team Time Complete the Monitoring Moment chart in preparation for sharing this afternoon. Please use dark markers so that your work can easily be read by the other teams who will be visiting your chart. Decide which member of your team will stay with your chart to briefly share important learnings and to answer questions.
Gallery Walk as a Team As a team move from chart to chart adding suggestions, questions or comments. In preparation for discussions this afternoon please take note of your discoveries, wonderings and questions.

How are you involving all of your stakeholders? - Whose voice is missing? - How might you invite them into the discussion and planning?
