The Institute for Learning will engage principals in collaborative discussions around the power of high-leverage practices, which are fundamental teaching practices that, when used consistently, can improve student performance. We will consider the components that can be used by a system to maximize the use of high-leverage practices to positively impact student learning, and consider local contexts and what it takes to “stay the course.” Using Design Thinking tools, principals will work in collaborative teams to generate practical ideas for implementing and sustaining high-leverage practices in their respective schools. Throughout the day principals will analyze and apply these ideas by creating an implementation plan to use and monitor high-leverage practices in their respective schools.
