We have made some strategic school-wide shifts in the past 2 years that have proven to be integral in the integration and reshaping of instruction at our elementary school. In this session we will share our solutions to the common problem "How do we do this?" To date, we have built a Learning Commons, a MakerSpace and Integrated our teaching of Technology which we consider the cornerstones of building quality instruction into everyday for every child. We now teach all of our subjects in a Workshop Model, incorporate design challenges that require students to use the Engineering Design Process, "flip" our staff meetings to be able to do more professional readings and have reached an unprecedented level of transparency with our community of parents. Join us to learn some practical strategies that you can implement this school year. We will share simple changes your team can make to mobilize your staff and make better use of your scheduled instructional time, rethink RTI practices, infuse teacher development through best practice, and create opportunities for job embedded professional development. Don't let the endless initiatives pull you and your staff in divergent directions, leave this session with techniques that will build your community of critical thinkers to get your team focused!
