Rating

Too often, high standards and a whole child approach are seen as opposite ends of the education spectrum. In this webinar, Molly McCloskey debunks the myth of standards versus support and shares the relationship between the Common Core State Standards and a school improvement approach that ensures each child, in each school, in each community, is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged. Going beyond the silos of too many school reform efforts, this webinar will explore integration, collaboration, and comprehensive framing rooted in high expectations for student and staff achievement.

Being a Teacher: Reading 8. Accountability for Professional Practice
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

All professions are required to be accountable in various ways for the quality of the service they render -- to their clients, to the public and to their fellow professionals. In the article from which this excerpt is taken, the writer analyses five forms of accountability that may operate in various institutions in a democratic society. Only two of these forms are applicable to teaching on a regular, day-to-day basis. A third form -- legal accountability -- comes into effect from time to time when a teacher, school, or education department is held to account in a court of law as a result of legal action, perhaps on the part of parents.

CP 35: Promoting Shared Leadership
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

In the EL Education model, leadership is a collaborative, dynamic effort toward a common vision for teaching and learning. Thus, in addition to creating the conditions for all staff to learn, school leaders create the conditions for all staff to lead. Leaders articulate and uphold clear decision-making processes, as well as roles and responsibilities for decisions that impact the learning community. Leaders strategically build the leadership capacity of others; they set up structures for staff and other members of the school community to take responsibility for school improvement efforts and empower these individuals to lead the work. High-functioning, data-informed, impact-oriented teams of educators drive improvement across the school.
