1b: Define and implement common and aligned instructional practices

Strategic Theme 1: Ensure all instruction is challenging, engaging, relevant and meets the needs of all students

What will we do?

  • research instructional practices

  • implement unit planning
  • continuing professional learning support
  • classroom observation systems

Why are we doing this?

Instructional practices that are interdisciplinary and experiential in nature will benefit LTOs #1 & 3, and common, researched-based strategies will allow us to better systematically develop our teaching staff.
