High Performance Learning Teams to Accelerate Achievement
This multi-media, interactive session presents key elements for implementing High Performance Learning Teams that accelerate achievement within a school-wide Title I school. Presenters describe specific instructional, management, and recognition protocols for creating 21st century team-based learning communities within a Multiple Tiered System of Support. Participants are introduced to the Team-Based Cycle of Instruction—an instructional delivery system that seamlessly integrates High Performance Learning Teams; UDL principles; structured cooperative learning; family engagement; technology tools; and formative assessment. In addition, specific processes are shared for using formative assessment data to differentiate instruction and personalize learning opportunities based on identified needs. Results of improved teacher performance and its link to increased student achievement among all students, including English Learners and those with disabilities, are summarized.
