Regional Workshop in Michigan 2019

February 4, 2019 - February 5, 2019 | Milford High School

What are the elements of our curriculum that have the greatest impact on student achievement? As school leaders and teachers, how do we focus on practices that matter for the most for student learning?

Join us for a 2-day workshop where we focus on applying evidence-based research on the practices and strategies that have been measurably found to improve student learning and looking at how to leverage Atlas to implement them into the curriculum.

Mapping what Matters: Leading the Curriculum Process

February 4, 2019 | 8:30am to 3:00pm

With a leadership perspective, on this day we will examine elements of a successful curriculum process and explore how to use curriculum maps to guide continual improvement of the curriculum and support curriculum writers and teachers to leverage the documented curriculum to collaborate, develop, and implement high impact instructional practices. In this workshop participants will:

  • Identify: Learn how to focus on the areas in your curriculum that lead to the greatest achievement outcomes.
  • Uncover: Learn how to investigate your current curriculum to focus in on the areas of the curriculum that matter most, and use this data to determine how you can guide change in a systematic and targeted way to increase student learning.
  • Guide: Explore how to support teachers in focused conversation and professional growth to develop elements of the curriculum that will lead to student achievement

Mapping what Matters: Empowering Teachers & Curriculum Writers

February 5, 2019 | 8:30am to 3:00pm

Tailored to teachers, this day will focus on using the curriculum in Atlas to deliberately build high impact instructional practices into unit and lesson plans. Teachers will walk through how to utilize reports to review the curriculum, explore how to develop a standards-based curriculum, and utilize the new lesson planning feature in Atlas! We’ll also look at examples of high-quality curriculum as participants receive guided support to develop a new unit of instruction or use an existing unit plan to develop lesson plans that implement high quality instructional practices, including strategies for engagement, guided practice, and differentiation.

  • Discover: Learn how to use reports in Atlas to guide a focused curriculum review
  • Clarify: Review examples of high-quality curriculum
  • Learn: Explore a process for creating a standards-based curriculum or modifying & improving curriculum your school has adopted
  • Create: Guided work time to develop a new unit of instruction or to create lesson plans for an existing unit that implements high-quality instructional practices
