Curriculum & Instruction

A lesson plan is a teacher’s guide for running a specific lesson. It includes the goal (what students are supposed to learn), the method how the goal will be reached, and measuring how well the goal was achieved (exit ticket, test, homework, etc.).

Lesson planning is a vital component of the teaching process. It keeps teachers organized and on track, allowing them to teach more effectively. As a result, students reach objectives more easily.

Depth of Knowledge (DOK) is the complexity of understanding required to answer an assessment-related item or classroom activity. This concept was developed by Norman Webb.

Originally, Webb developed Depth of Knowledge for science and math standards. The model has since expanded to include language, arts, history, social studies, mathematics, and science. Educators are applying DOK to design better instruction.

School Turnaround

School turnaround is a comprehensive intervention directed towards a low-performing school that produces significant gains in achievement, and readies the school for the process of transformation into a high-performing one.

It refers to the efforts being made by districts and states to improve student outcomes, build capacity, and sustain reforms. Professional development for educators and mentoring support for leaders can help them in this regard.

What Is Rigor?

Rigor has been advancing in educational circuits, but many educators are still not familiar with the concept and how to support it within the classroom. Understanding rigor is vital in finding out how to approach and measure learning. Professional development for teachers can help them in this regard.

Data

The Role of Data in Education

Data from multiple sources guide decisions about professional learning which can impact outcomes for students. Schools can improve learning for all students by gathering and using various categories of data more effectively. This article will take up the different types of data, how teachers can use data, and the importance of data in education.

Differentiation is a term that all teachers know. We read about it in books, hear about it in training, and see it on our evaluation rubrics. Teachers know they have to differentiate to meet the needs of their students. They try to do so with the knowledge and tools that they have. Many teachers do this with high levels of success. However, many educators still struggle with what differentiation “looks like” in the classroom and therefore feel stuck.

LeadershipProfessional Development

Experienced educators use teacher mentoring programs to provide knowledge, support, advice, and reinforcement. More importantly, educational consulting can contribute in enhancing the work, skills, career, and professional development of teachers.

A mentor is an experienced and trustworthy person who takes a keen interest in helping an apprentice become successful. He/she is a teacher, adviser, friend, and role model rolled into one. An effective mentoring relationship involves mutual respect, trust, understanding, and empathy. Aside from technical expertise, mentors also share their wisdom and life experiences.
