Develop a systematic approach for evaluating, reviewing or revising your curriculum on an ongoing basis to ensure it meets the needs of your learning community. Join Rubicon as we explore how schools use a variety of data points to reflect on their curriculum and adjust it to meet the needs of their students.
We will explore how to use the steps of a data inquiry cycle to support teachers in effectively using their curriculum and assessment data to improve student outcomes:
Gain Perspective: What are your goals and priorities for reviewing your data?
Prepare Data: What information or resources will help answer your question?
Discover or Uncover: What can you learn from the data? What confirms your expectations, and what surprises you?
Meet, Discuss, and Adjust: How can we collaborate with our teams to adjust our instruction based on these results?
Identify Next Steps: How can we put our plan into action?
We will use Atlas to run a variety of reports to answer key questions about student learning. Participants will walk away with a library of reports to use when they return to school.
In this hands-on preconference session, we will also prepare participants for a curriculum review, by articulating the steps you will take in your review process and developing guidelines and resources to support your work.
