Overview:
In Week 1 of this course you examined the framework of the Instructional Core. Aligning in Week 2, you focused on the curriculum by examining both external and internal accountability when aligning curriculum. Now in Week 3, you will focus on growing your understanding of the importance of making data driven decisions about the instructional practices on your campus. As an instructional leader it is your focus to provide students with academically challenging practices and assessments in the classroom by identifying needs using data. Identifying school-level needs through student achievement and other data sets pinpoint the areas of concentration an instructional leader should focus on during the planning stages of professional development. You will grow your knowledge, skills, and mindset on providing professional development on “how to identify” areas of need from data to drive effective instruction in the classroom that improves student achievement. This focus of continuous school improvement is a priority for most Instructional Leaders.
