  3. The Instructional Playbook: The Missing Link for Translating Research into Practice

    In schools, every day is ‘game day'. Every day, teachers need the best resources and forms of support because students deserve the best we as educators can offer. An instructional playbook aims to serve as that kind of support: a tool that coaches can use to help teachers match specific learning goals with the right research-based instructional strategies. Coaches have enormous potential to help teachers learn and implement new teaching practices, but coaches will only be effective if they deeply understand the strategies they describe and their explanations are clear. The instructional playbook addresses both issues head on and offers a simple and clear explanation of how to create a playbook uniquely designed to meet teachers’ instructional needs.

  6. Scheduling for Personalized Competency-Based Education

    Personalised competency-based education (PCBE) is a system of education in which students each learn at the individual pace and progress depends on mastery rather than age. While PCBE has countless benefits, one challenge of adopting this system is scheduling classes and organising learning on a daily basis. Scheduling for personalized competency-based education guides F–12 school leaders and teachers through resolving this issue. The authors offer an overview of the PCBE system, describe the use of student data as the foundation for PCBE scheduling and address various considerations related to creating a schedule that prioritises students’ learning needs. They detail the processes for structuring and transitioning to two types of PCBE schedules: (1) horizontal and (2) vertical.
