This chart lists high-yield instructional strategies, what the research says about them, and how to implement them in classrooms. The information has been adapted from Classroom Instruction that Works: Research-based Strategies for Increasing Student Achievement by Robert Marzano.
This is a pivotal time for public education. There’s a new lens on the issue of equity in schools, like who has access to distance learning. There’s fresh recognition that students must own their own learning to be college- and career-ready. We’re seeing that having a clear school identity and shared values helps school communities come together when it really matters, like now.
School leaders can use this simple framework for long-term covid-19 school planning: school identity, vision of student readiness, equity, and impact.
How about some good news? We’re partnering with Atwater High to close the achievement gap for diverse students. See some impressive outcomes in EdCal.
This weekend we were honored to spend the weekend with @CALSAfamilia where our CEO Dr. Matt Coleman highlighted examples of how educational leaders are using a shared identity to put families and student voices at the center of how decisions are made.
Walking off the stage at my high school graduation, I remember thinking that the transition into my “next chapter” would consist entirely of the extended weekend of freshman orientation at Linfield College, moving all of my stuff into my dorm room, meeting my new roommates, and attending my first day of classes. Period.
It’s finally summer! Time to take a well-deserved break….or start thinking about next school year. 😉 Here at Inflexion we’ve all been making our summer reading lists, and came across a few books we wanted to share.
Recently, I had the opportunity to ask Dr. Kristine Chadwick for her thoughts on how our research can be useful to educators. We are inspired by Kristine’s vision of how our research will empower educators and ultimately students to use the power already within their communities to better prepare all students to be ready for their futures.
Education is hard. So, whatever role you find yourself filling in the vast world of education, we hear you when you say it’s hard. We do what we do because we know none of us can do it alone, and we believe, like you, that there are few things more important than preparing our students for the future.
Over the past couple of years, we’ve had the opportunity to work with schools not just in our area, but also around the world. Through a number of research and consulting projects, we visited schools and spoke with educators about how they prepare students to be ready for life after high school.
