• In the two day training, teams start by developing identity and establishing productive, professional relationships that maximize individual’s strengths. Teachers create a vision for their ideal team and student graduate that culminates in the posting of team norms and Academy mission statement. Teacher teams will use their established mission statement and norms to guide their work toward developing sample Academy and team SMART Goals aligned to teaming focuses: teaming processes, standards-based interdisciplinary teaching and learning, and responsive academic interventions. Teacher teams will then brainstorm about an Academy-specific event that celebrates student growth and achievement based on student data, involves community and business engagement, and builds Academy identity and ownership. Finally, teacher teams will explore data-driven student intervention protocols and lay the foundation for interdisciplinary instruction. The training culminates with each team conducting an abbreviated mock team meeting.
  • The three day training starts with teams developing identity and establishing productive, professional relationships that maximize individual’s strengths. Teachers will create a vision for their ideal team and student graduate that culminates in the posting of team norms and Academy mission statement. On the second day of training, teacher teams will use their established mission statement and norms to guide their work toward developing Academy and team SMART Goals aligned to teaming focuses: teaming processes, standards-based interdisciplinary teaching and learning, and responsive academic interventions. Teacher teams will then create a plan for an Academy-specific event that celebrates student growth and achievement based on student data, involves community and business engagement, and builds Academy identity and ownership. On the third day, teacher teams will develop a structure for data-driven student interventions and lay the foundation for integrating interdisciplinary skills and themed content into daily classroom instruction. The training culminates with each team conducting a mock team meeting.
