Edenrose’s Theories of Action for 2018-2019-

School-Wide

Literacy: If we focus on developing learning goals and success criteria in order for learning to be more visible, then students will be better able to communicate their thinking and learning in different ways.

Numeracy: If we implement the components of a Balanced Math program with a focus on consolidation, then students will be more engaged and likely to persevere and be able to communicate thinking and learning in different ways.

Climate for Learning & Working:

· If we engage in creating culturally responsive tasks in order to connect with student experiences, schema, and narratives, then students will be able to make better connections to text and will be more engaged with the learning.

· If we put into action a restorative mindset (i.e. community circles) when supporting students who make mistakes, then a caring climate to support a healthy school community will be created.

Mental Health: If we promote school wide mental wellness and healthy living, then we will proactively support staff, students and families within our community.

Edenrose Administration Theory of Action: If we empower, engage and build capacity within the school’s professional learning community (staff, students, parents) then this will create a positive climate for learning and working and a focus on teaching and a focus on teaching and learning.
