The Goal: The Data Wise process – using data to improve instruction – is an internalized, self-sustaining, school-wide process.
Probing Questions – extend the thinking about the desired goal How do we sustain the work with ongoing turnover in staff? Is something going to have to “give” in the daily life of school staff so more of the Data Wise work can be done?
Project into the future What does it look like, sound like, feel like having accomplished this endeavor? Must talk in present tense. Describe what is in this best case scenario. Do not yet describe how. Try to remain as tangible as possible (think about culture, conversations, teacher and student work, etc.).
Look “back” from the future -- the year 2007 as the past Describe how this endeavor looked when it started. Must talk in past tense. Think about issues, culture, conversations, teacher’s work, student achievement. Try to remain as tangible as possible.
Continue looking “back” – the transition (2007-Future) How did you address the starting place? How did you move to the “projected present”? Must talk in past tense. Relate directly to the previous description of how it looked when it started. Consider how, when, with what resources, and by whom.
