Prepping for the Year
Below are important outcomes of this meeting that affect all district teachers.
MAX Teaching -- Setting Purpose, Vision, and Expectations
As a quick summary of a long conversation, your attendance at this Friday's MAX Teaching training is the start of a commitment to improving instructional "toolboxes". The DLT expects this training to
- Increase consistency through common strategies, common language between teachers, and common writing expectations across contents.
- Add high-quality strategies that are proven to work
- Actively engage students
- Improve differentiation
- Help all teachers provide immediate feedback
Friday's Training Focus: All teachers need to pick up at least 1 strategy this Friday to try at least 2x a week during the first 2 weeks of school. Implementing strategies will continue 2x a week through October 11.
***Look for a follow-up email with additional DLT expectations next week.
You should have received the link to this schedule in the email from Kent on Monday. There has been a change in the morning -- AM trainings / activities will end at 11:20 to give BLEA more meeting time during lunch. BLEA lunch is at HS Cafeteria.
This is a reminder about what MAX Teaching "IS" and "IS NOT" to help you focus this Friday during training.
