Teaching and learning

In alignment with our 2016-2019 Strategic Plan, our school is currently implementing The Art and Science of Teaching (Marzano) and Gradual Release of Responsibility (Fleming) approaches as our whole school Pedagogical Framework.
 
The Art and Science of Teaching is organized into 10 Design Questions which are fundamental to high-quality teaching practices in our school and include:
 
  1. What will I do to establish and communicate learning goals, track student progress and celebrate success?
  2. What will I do to help students effectively interact with new knowledge
  3. What will I do to help students practice and deepen their understanding of new knowledge?
  4. What will I do to help students generate and test hypotheses about new knowledge?
  5. What will I do to engage students?
  6. What will I do to establish or maintain classroom rules and procedures?
  7. What will I do to recognize and acknowledge adherence and lack of adherence to classroom rules and procedures?
  8. What will I do to establish and maintain effective relationships with students?
  9. What will I do to communicate high expectations for all students?
  10. What will I do to develop effective lessons organized into a cohesive unit?
 
The Gradual Release of Responsibility model uses the ‘I Do’, ‘We Do’, ‘You Do’ approach to supporting students to build independence in their learning.
