Your Prioritized Improvement Actions

As you are getting ready for the upcoming school year, I want to help you prioritize the actions that will maximize effort and performance, for both students and teachers.

1. Teach the right thing, at the right time, at the right rigor.  If this is not occurring, at scale, even though the students and staff are working, performance will always lag behind effort.

2. Identify your core instructional delivery model, and use it, with increasing frequency and quality. Provide ongoing training and support on the model. We suggest you use The Fundamental 5, but even lesser systems can work if implemented with fidelity.

3. Identify your core behavior/student discipline model, and use and MODEL it, with increasing frequency and quality. Provide ongoing training and support on the model. I suggest you use Girls and Boys Town, but other systems can work if implemented with fidelity.

4. Indentify the specialized content delivery models (used in conjunction with the core instructional delivery model) for Reading, Writing, Math and possibly Science. Use the models with increasing frequency and quality.  Provide ongoing training and support on the models.

5. Keep working the above list, in order presented. 

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
