Curriculum Training For New Building
August 2-3, 2017
This two-day learning opportunity will provide new building leaders with a deeper understanding of the key components of curriculum, instruction, and tracking student growth. The building leader’s day is fraught with balancing instructional and non-instructional issues. The level of accountability to district administration to provide evidence of student growth is high, which is why it is important to recognize effective instructional strategies and high quality curriculum implementation resulting in improved student growth. Building leaders must understand the layers of the curriculum, the Missouri Learning Standards, how to create an organizational structure to ensure high levels of learning, identify the essential learning outcomes to be taught, and how curriculum and instruction can make or break a building’s Annual Performance Report.

Conducting You Own Curriculum Audit
The single most important step toward change is the first one. It is the one that begins the journey. Thus, using our internal GPS, it is essential that we first determine 'Where We Are'. This requires that we 'Face Our Own Reality' before we begin to chart a course for ‘where we will need to go’ and ‘what we are willing to do to get there,’ if we are to reach our goal of preparing every student with the 21st century skills they will need to be ready to succeed!
This 2-Day workshop will provide Curriculum Leaders with tools to help them determine if there is congruence among the written, taught and tested curriculum in their schools; including how to conduct a Readiness Audit to determine how prepared their district is to perform the work and adjust to changes in curriculum development and instructional strategies that will need to be done over the next couple of years.
