  2. 2. Focus for 2010-2011 <ul><li>Student engagement in mathematics and for EL students. </li></ul>
  3. 4. Deep Alignment Written Taught Tested Curriculum Instruction Assessment
  4. 5. Instructional Rounds <ul><li>The power of rounds will only be realized when and if rounds becomes embedded in the actual work of the district. Only if rounds develops a collaborative, inquiry-based culture that shatters the norms of isolation and autonomy and if it leads to the establishment of an “educational practice” that trumps the notion of teaching as an art, a craft, or a style will rounds transform teaching and learning. </li></ul>
  5. 6. Deprivatizing Practice <ul><li>Slowly, the image of the teacher behind the closed classroom door is giving way to an image of an open door, but many educators are not sure what to look for when they open the door and what to do with what they see. </li></ul>
  6. 7. Four Step Process <ul><li>Identifying a problem of practice </li></ul><ul><li>Observing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Approx. 20 minutes each </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Debriefing </li></ul><ul><li>Focusing on next level of work </li></ul>
  7. 8. Instructional Core <ul><li>The only way that teaching and learning can improve is through changes in the relationships of students and teachers in the presence of content. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Seven Principles of the Instructional Core <ul><li>Increases in student learning occur only as a consequence of improvements in the level of content, teachers’ knowledge and skill, and student engagement. </li></ul><ul><li>If you change any single element of the instructional core, you have to change the other two. </li></ul><ul><li>If you can’t see it in the core, it’s not there. </li></ul><ul><li>Task predicts performance. </li></ul><ul><li>The real accountability system is in the tasks that students are asked to do. </li></ul><ul><li>We learn the work by doing the work, not by telling other people to do the work, not by having done the work at some time in the past, and not by hiring experts who can act as proxies for our knowledge about how to do the work. </li></ul><ul><li>Description before analysis, analysis before prediction, prediction before evaluation. </li></ul>
  9. 10. Theories of Action <ul><li>If … then … should … </li></ul><ul><li>Examples: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If we use data in systematic ways as a vehicle for examining school, classroom, and individual student progress, then interventions will be targeted in focused ways and achievement will increase. </li></ul></ul>
  10. 11. Our Theory of Action <ul><li>If we focus our collective “professional learning communities” on student engagement, then student achievement should increase. </li></ul>
  11. 12. Goals of Rounds Process <ul><li>Understand importance of instructional core </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the steps of instructional rounds </li></ul><ul><li>Develop skills in observing teaching and learning—describing what we see </li></ul><ul><li>Develop skills in debriefing an observation </li></ul><ul><li>Build relationships within the group </li></ul><ul><li>Validate (or not) our theory of action </li></ul>
