PLN: Book Study - Focus Summary

In order to FOCUS, we must have:
  • A sound, coherent curriculum, with fewer standards.
  • Rich, engaging lessons. (modeling, guided practice, checks for understanding)
  • Meaningful reading and writing in all content areas.
We need teams of teachers, working together to monitor the implementation of the above. Until we do these things well, we should do nothing else.
If you had to evaluate your school today, how Focused are you?
