Transcript

  • 1. Understanding by Design Staff development Bill Olmstead July 2003
  • 2. Research shows that reforms don’t work if staff does not buy into the program
  • 3. DUH!
  • 4. Reforms are most effective when:
    • Staff is well informed about the options,
    • make a free choice about the program chosen, and
    • reach a broad consensus.
  • 5. So, what do we do about the District’s mandate that we study Understanding by Design?
  • 6. Whatever we do,
    • Must be meaningful,
    • Cannot require an inordinate amount of your time, and
    • Should start us on the path to consensus.
  • 7. I propose:
    • Everyone reads chapters 1 & 2,
    • the 8 core teams, the electives team, and the administration team each read one additional chapter, and
    • teams meet to discuss their chapter and decide how to present the information to the whole school tomorrow.
  • 8. DO NOT get too fancy. Focus on communication, not salesmanship.
  • 9. Bring back one idea for another book or program that we should study as we look at increasing student achievement.
  • 10. I encourage you to read the entire book. It is well worth your time and may improve your instruction.
  • 11. Besides, how will you know whether we should make a building commitment to this approach if you haven’t read it all?
  • 12. Have fun!
