Strategy 1: Partnership Learning for Educators - Jim Knight has seven partnership principles that he defines for professionals to engage in true partnership learning.

Riane Eisler says, “…Partnership can best be understood as one of two ways of understanding life–the other thing being what she calls the dominator approach to relationships.” (Knight, 2002, p. 7) The seven principles include equality, choice, voice, reflection, dialogue, praxis, and reciprocity. “A group can start to think as one big mind, one group of differently talented, unique individuals sharing the joy of muddling over a problem” (p. 16). The principles will be evident in professional learning sessions implemented throughout the year.

Activity - Assemblies and Field Trips Activity Type Begin Date End Date Resource Assigned Source Of Funding Staff Responsible There will be school-wide character and book author presentations during the year.

Goal 2: All students will increase their fluency and comprehension skills in reading. Strategy 1: Targeted Instruction - Teachers will individualize instruction for each student depending on the students' abilities and growth goals.

The abilities are not just reflected by academic abilities but also by culture, socioeconomic status, gender, and language. Teachers will target instruction by utilizing weekly classroom formative and/or summative assessments and PowerSchool assessments. Research Cited: The intent of targeted instruction is to use assessments and observations to determine the most appropriate ability groups to implement lessons best suited to encourage growth (Center for Education Innovations). To differentiate instruction is to recognize students varying background knowledge, readiness, language, preferences in learning, interests, and to react responsively.

Differentiated instruction is a process to approach teaching and learning for students of differing abilities in the same classes. The intent of differentiating instruction is to maximize each student’s growth and individual success by meeting each student where he or she is and assisting in the learning process (National Center on Accessing the General Curriculum). All first-year teachers and support staff members will be assigned mentors who are veterans in the school or in the profession; new teachers/support staff to the school will also be assigned mentors for their first two to three years.

Mentors are selected based upon their years of experience, time served in the school/district/profession, ability to get along with others, and level of competence in their respective areas. All novice teachers/support staff with less than three years of experience will be provided instructional coaching/support.

According to Rebecca Greene (October 25, 2013) in her article, "5 Key Strategies for ELL Instruction," English Language Learners (ELLs) face the double challenge of learning academic content as well as the language in which it is presented. Teachers have traditionally treated language learning as a process of imparting words and structures or rules to students separate from the process of teaching content knowledge. This approach has left ELLs especially unprepared to work with the complex texts and the academic types of language that are required to engage in content area practices, such as solving word problems in mathematics, or deconstructing an author’s reasoning and evidence in English language arts.

ELLs need to be given frequent, extended opportunities to speak about content material and work through complex texts in English with small groups of classmates.
