- Graduate school provides school leaders with an understanding of school law, leadership theory, curriculum theory, communication with stakeholders, and management.
- Hattie suggests that principals are engaged in instructional leadership when they have their major focus on creating a learning climate free of disruption, a system of clear teaching objectives, and high teacher expectations for teachers and students (2012, p. 83).
- As an instructional leader, hundreds of students and families are counting on you to give the school direction and help students grow as lifelong learners.
- While it is important to focus on curriculum development, assessment, healthy school lunches, exercise, and student safety, some schools could benefit from focusing on how well principals are communicating.
- There is no such thing as a perfect leader and great principals lead by providing others with leadership opportunities.

- So, students write times tables then often answer a word problem to demonstrate multiplication.
- Whether its a lesson in associative property of multiplication or distributive property of multiplication over addition, repetition of the ideas creates comfort for students.
- Students must practice equations and word problems constantly in order to keep their minds focused.
- The idea is that you allow students to focus on an object or reward to motivate them to create word problems centered on their object of devotion.
- This will break up the lesson but also give the student and teacher a better idea of whats really being learned.

- As a blended learning coach, I spend time in other teachers classrooms observing, co-teaching and coaching.
- Instead of writing an agenda on the board or projecting it onto your smart board and guiding students lock-step through the parts of the lesson, teachers can create interactive agendas using Google Slides.
- Two years ago when I began using Google Slides to create my agenda for each day, I created a template for each of the types of lessons I typically design (e.g., Station Rotation, Whole Group Rotation, Flipped Classroom, etc.).
- My agendas typically a few of the following elements: – – I workwith teachers who use one slide for each of the activities they plan to cover in a lesson.
- Shifting from writing my agendas on the board to creating interactive online agendas with Google Slides allowed me to spend less time answering the what do we do…?

- Besides setting up a unit approach via genre, fairy tales match the summer mood, the feeling that the days with no school are magical.
- Fairy tales, with their consistent structures, can be an invaluable way to help students continue to develop their sense of narrative structure over the summer.
- Librarian Trish Sabini was already preparing for the librarys summer reading program, and she happened to have a collection of variations on the tale of Little Red Riding Hood on her deskthe books use different cultures, settings, and tones.
- Have kids draw comparisons across variations of the same fairy tale or between different onesthis will give them a way to keep connecting tales all summer long.
- Plan a school-wide fairy tale fall celebration: Let kids and their families know there will be a fairy tale celebration in the fall that they can look forward to as a capstone to their summer fairy tale journey.
