Analyzing a Standards-based Classroom
Audience: K-12 Administrators, Instructional Facilitators
Length: 3 days (beginning, middle, and end of the year)
Description: What are the “big rocks” you should be looking for in a standards-based classroom? The goal of this work is to help leaders identify and analyze key instructional strategies and practices that need to be occurring routinely in classrooms. (This can also assist in clearly establishing the current state of reality in the implementation process.)
Results: Guided by an ABC Coach, participants collaborate and "norm" their expectations. Using a customized walk-through type tool, the group will participate in reflective walks where they identify strengths and areas for focused conversations. Together the group will collaborate on techniques that can promote conversations with teachers about key components of an effective standards-based classroom.
"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more,
you are a leader."
John Quincy Adams
"A leader takes people where they want to go.
A great leader takes people where they don't necessarily want to go
but ought to be."
"True greatness consists of being great in little things."
"Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare."
