Building Better Schools Together
December 5, 2013
9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Sheraton Red Deer Hotel, Red Deer
Presented by Wayne Hulley
Schools are under great pressure to produce improved results with limited resources. The days of control, comply, and command have been replaced by coordinate, communicate, and collaborate. Wayne will provide a framework for effective planning and demonstrate how the concepts presented in the various sessions support schools in reaching the mission of learning by all.
Wayne will relate the concepts and strategies presented to the five phases of the Building Better Schools Together model (Creating an Intention, Study, Reflection, Plan, and Implement). Reflect on your current planning process and see how this model has led to very positive results in schools throughout North America.
- Learn a common language of instruction
- Learn important routines, including how to be clear about learning goals connected to proficiency scales
- Experience instructional strategies connected to delivering new content, and practice them to deepen understanding
- Discover the importance of applying knowledge by generating and testing hypotheses
- Learn important teacher behaviors for engagement and for building student-teacher relationships
- Ensure high expectations for all students
