During this engaging 2-day training--which employs effective instructional strategies to deliver content and develop teaming skills.--teams create identity and establish productive, professional relationships that maximize individual's strengths.
Teachers create a vision for their ideal team and student graduate that culminates in the posting of team norms and Academy mission statement. Teacher teams will use their Academy and team SMART Goals aligned to teaming foci: teaming processes, standards-based interdisciplinary teaching and learning, and response academic interventions. Teacher teams will then brainstorm about an Academy-specific event that celebrates student growth and achievement based on student data, involves community and business engagement, and builds Academy identity and ownership. Finally, teacher teams will explore data-driven student intervention protocols and lay the foundation for interdisciplinary instruction. The training culminates with each team conducting an abbreviated mock team meeting. Learn More
