Our first week of Coach Internship was a great success!  Throughout the week, we had a "Parking Lot" chart posted so that participants could post sticky notes with questions and/or resources requests. Last week's participants will receive an email this week that will address the questions posted. We are adding the requested resources to this blog post.

The 5 Absolutes:

In education we know things are always changing; however, we know that these absolutes are what all teachers need to know and do to be effective.
The first bullet tells us where we’re going.
The second and third bullets tell us how we will get there.
The fourth bullet tells us how we will know we have arrived.
The last one is the most important because it tells us why.

  • Teach to the standards for each of the required subjects                     
  • Through a clearly articulated and locally aligned K-12 curriculum
  • Supported by aligned resources, support, and professional development
  • Monitored regularly through formative, interim/benchmark assessments to inform the effectiveness of the instruction and continued learning needs of individuals and groups of students
  • With a goal that each student graduates from high school with the knowledge and skills to succeed in post-high school education and the workforce without the need for remediation as evidenced by multiple measures achieved through multiple pathways to meet the graduation requirements set for students in Alabama.
