  • The Student Planning Process reflects the practices of excellent teachers by which they continually monitor and adjust instruction on a daily basis with their children. In addition, teachers will have the information from the Monthly Planning Process meetings that will help to provide a focus for the delivery of their individual instructional plans with their own students. At this level, individual teachers are encouraged to document impressions and collect data that can be presented at the Monthly Planning Meetings to help provide insight into the progress of the instructional plan and to assist in the formulation of new plans and emphases for the next instructional cycle. Emphasize the two-sides arrows and how the data and conclusions flow between the levels on a routine basis. This communication flow enhances the effectiveness and impact of each planning process.
