This is the first in a two-part series (October 22 and November 17) featuring Dr. Liz City and sponsored by NHASP.
For the first session, participants will use a protocol to analyze a school/district initiative they felt was successful, or on the way to success. from this past spring. This fall, we will distill key elements of success to build upon moving forward. Participants will also engage in a simulation to illustrate the power and process of rapid improvement cycles so that they can apply rapid learning-by-doing in their own contexts after the session. Participants will identify what they want to laser-focus on this fall. Specifically, on how they want to guide their decision-making in an uncertain and changing context. This session will offer very practical and grounded context for your current work.
For the second session, we’re going to try to get out of managing-crisis mode and see crisis as opportunity. What is happening, or potentially could happen, in your school systems that would make a big difference for student learning—e.g., engaging parents as partners in a different way, students taking more ownership of their learning, individualizing learning in a different way, talking about race and racism explicitly, shifting curriculum and/or other sacred cows to better meet the needs of the students in front of us . . . We’ll read a couple of texts to help us think about that, and we’ll workshop their ideas using design-based thinking.
Both workshops are highly interactive and include practical tools that you can apply in your everyday practice.
