League of Innovative Schools Meeting: Designing and Refining Systems of Supports and Extensions for All Learners – Members Only
What can schools do to help all students meet shared learning expectations? And how can they ensure opportunities to excel?
In this session, members of the League of Innovative Schools will reflect upon the support and extensions practices that ensure equitable outcomes for all students. Using the collective thinking of the network, members will leave with new ideas, perspectives, and commitments to implement upon returning to their schools.
Participants will select one of two pathways that lead to the refinement and design of student support and extension practices. In the design thinking pathway, participants will tackle a challenge by expansively considering a situation and generating multiple, concrete solutions. Through the tuning pathway, participants will gather actionable feedback in order to improve a particular practice or plan. Participants who are interested in the tuning pathway should come with artifacts to share with a group of approximately ten colleagues.
As a result of this session, participants will be able to refine and implement practices at their schools that better support equitable outcomes for all students. In addition, they will strengthen relationships within the network and build comfort with a process for tackling challenges and refining work that they can bring back to their schools.
