Overview

ANet’s National Group Learning Series are virtual experiences that include opportunities to engage in active breakouts, learn and apply new equitable practices, reflect on and share learnings with others, and activate on clear next steps. In this leadership series, leaders will learn how to operationalize systems and structures to support equitable math and literacy instruction through concrete strategies to support ALL students.

Quick Tip: Browse the related resources at the bottom of the page to see all other National Group Learning Series! 

Session 1: Developing Our Readers Through Equitable, Research-Based Practices   (10.19.20)

Pre-Work: 

Objectives: 

  • Refine your understanding of the science of reading comprehension.
  • Become familiar with instructional structures and practices to supporting the development of reading comprehension (foundational skills, building knowledge, and fluency).
  • Reflect on leader practices that support the ongoing, consistent implementation.

Materials: All materials and recordings can be found in this folder.  

Next steps: 

  • Schedule a 30-60 minute huddle with your instructional leadership team who attended the other tracks to share headlines and determine your next steps
  • Work collaboratively with your literacy lead to conduct an audit of the literacy programming
  • Prioritize one focus area (for the next three weeks) in support of strengthening your literacy programming (if you already have a clearly defined literacy priority, work with your coach to refine any supports/systems)

 

Session 2: Developing our Mathematicians- Reaching the Margins   (11.9.20) 

Pre-Work: 

  • Explore the Math Recovery Framework
    • Click into the accompanying resources/links.
    • Reflect: What takeaways do you have about the recommendations? What practices are you supporting that reflect this guidance? 
  • Explore the Literacy  Recovery Framework
    • Click into the accompanying resources/links.
    • Reflect: How does this align with your commitments from the last session?

Objectives: 

  • Reflect on and share actions that you took since session 1.
  • Understand how high-quality tasks can support learning in the margin, especially in a virtual environment.
  • Learn about the Math Language Routines and see an example of how it supports the use of HQ tasks to reach learning in the margins.

Materials: All materials and recordings can be found in this folder.  

Next steps: 

  • Schedule a 30-60 minute huddle with your instructional leadership team who attended the other tracks to share headlines and determine your next steps.
  • Work collaboratively with your Math lead (and ANet coach) to understand how the Math teams are currently leveraging HQ Math tasks to reach learning in the margins.
  • Review the student work of students with learning and thinking differences and English Learners for one prioritized grade level. Identify what trends you notice.

 

 

Session 3: Leader Leversthat Work!   (12.7.20) 

While our previous pre-work has been optional, we ask you two prioritize two action items to maximize our final time together:

  • Identify a Success from the Leader Levers. Share your success (and any relevant resources) on this padlet under your specified leader lever. You might choose a success that surprised you, or that you haven’t already analyzed on your own, or that you would like to get others’ thinking about.  It doesn’t have to be a large success — people learn a lot in this exercise from relatively “small” successes as well.
  • Revisit the content from the first two sessions. This can look like you rewatching portions of the recording or clicking into a resource that you wanted to look at more closely. Come prepared to share 1-2 actions that you will execute on to take one step forward in increasing students’ access to equitable learning experiences in Q3/Q4.
