A LYS Principal share the following:


I just completed a formal observation on one of my teachers.  I’m darn near giddy! The teacher embedded the Fundamental 5 throughout her lesson. This wasn’t for show, it was completely natural.

In our PLC meeting teachers are talking about their two deepest holes. Not as a complaint about the checkpoint, but looking for instructional causes that can be addressed. 

The district is introducing some Novice Reduction training where they explain to teachers the differences between direct instruction (DI) vs explicit direct instruction (eDI).   We just tell our teachers, “Keep getting better at The Fundamental 5 and you’ll exceed the District expectation.”

And our teachers get it! They can see that what we’re doing is now in front of the district. It’s awesome! We still have much to do, but progress…. Yay!!!
