We are thankful each of you are here and know you will be a great part of The Whirlwind Effect!
What is our WHY?
We are dedicated to education...committed to excellence.
Through our partnership with CEN, FCISD strives for
- a vision of college and career focus to break generational poverty,
- provide affordable education and high expectations for educational attainment, and
- transform educator development to strengthen a spirit of innovation in educational best practice and advance rural school research, faculty preparation, reward, and professional development.
Here is a great resource you can download and/or print to help find effective strategies aligned to the Common Instructional Framework.
As we begin internal rounds for this year, administrators will be providing support and feedback around the Common Instructional Framework.
Objective Driven Daily Lesson Planning
Communicate the daily objective (derived from the readiness standard) with students so they know what they are learning for the day, and you know it is directly aligned to the readiness standard (TEK)!
Have a way to collect evidence of learning (aka EXIT TICKET) for what you expected students to learn! Use this information to determine if they got it or not and inform future planning/lessons!
AVID Strategy-Focused Note-Taking
As more students will be taking dual credit, it would be a great resource for any teacher to watch or use with students to anchor the FNT process. It may be an option for all of one subject area to work through with students. Think about it with your PLC team.
If you watch it at school, you will need to use the Filter Bypass.
AVID Open Access has note-taking templates, graphic organizers, and other great resources! CHECK IT OUT HERE!
