As part of the site-based professional learning on November 4th Inspire, ATC, and Turning Point schools all gathered to engage in sessions focused on using the Yearly Instructional Practice Guides for ELA/Literacy and Mathematics. These sessions are part of ongoing professional learning for educators designed to deepen understanding of the instructional shifts, identify and use resources to align teaching and learning to the Common Core, and engage teachers in collaborative inquiry.
Throughout the day educators worked in content area groups to explore the Yearly IPGs and supporting resources that might inform their instruction. ELA and Literacy teachers studied print and video resources from Student Achievement Partners, the Common Core Standards, and Robert Pondiscio. Mathematics teachers worked through print and video resources from Student Achievement Partners, Smith & Stein, the Common Core Standards, standard authors Daro, McCallum, and Zimba, as well as Ryan Debry Talbot. Both groups spent time collaboratively planning with vetted resources from WCSD Department of Curriculum & Instruction, Louisiana Believes, Student Achievement Partners, EQuIP, and Washoe County teacher groups.
