Instructional Leadership for Curriculum Coherence (ILCC)
About the Project
Teachers leaders such as department chairs, grade team leaders or instructional leads are often asked to lead meetings and professional development, without in-house support.
This year-long professional learning series will support teacher leaders such as department chairs, grade team leaders or instructional leads with developing the skills to effectively lead adult learning through meetings and professional development to enact their instructional vision.
The ILCC project will provide teacher leaders with planning support around year long meeting arcs, developing team or department best practices, launching literacy initiatives or creating instructional exemplars within the school that will help meet school wide goals.
Culturally Responsive Pedagogy
We will learn about the CRE needs of teacher leaders and how to increase teacher leader use of culturally responsive pedagogy in department/team meetings and professional development. Professional learning will connect to learners’ funds of knowledge by encouraging them to draw on their cultural capital, tools and strengths to apply new learning and demonstrate new skills.
We will learn about the most requested instructional and literacy needs of teacher leaders who run department wide or grade team meetings, and what are several options for how teams can increase their use of shared literacy practices. PL facilitation: Participants engage in internal and external metacognitive conversations to make sense of resources. Elements of explicit instruction such as modeling, practice, feedback, reflection and feedback will be used at different times to make the steps of facilitating adult learning clear. ? Evaluation: As a result of coherent adult learning planning via agenda, protocols, etc. X number of teachers report using the instructional routine or implementing the instructional practice with students per cycle.
Teacher leaders will learn how to incorporate the SIMPL model in their team meetings, as well as video, to learn and adopt team wide practices. We will utilize principles from NVCHS Adult Learning Stance to inform our planning and to assess our participants’ experiences.
