This is an incredible opportunity to include district members outside of the Leadership Team to gain critical knowledge around the shifts necessary for supporting academic discourse in ALL classrooms!

Objective

The purpose of the site visit consultancy is to provide cross-district learnings to support the effective design and implementation of tools for building the capacity of teachers to cultivate structured collaborative discussions in all classrooms.

Essential Questions

1) How might we implement structures and processes which build the capacity of teachers to cultivate structured collaborative discussions in all classrooms?
2) How do tools such as rubrics cultivate a coherent, district-wide vision for academic language, facilitative common understanding of prioritized instructional shifts, and build individual teacher and group capacity to enact those shifts?
