13 Principles for Teaching, Learning and Leading in the K-12 Classroom


It doesn’t matter what programs teachers are using. What matters to them is getting back to teaching.

Getting Back to Teaching: Invite! Excite! Ignite! is that sustained, job-embedded, professional opportunity. Leadership teams customize the series to district or school professional goals, choosing the sequence and emphasis that fit their needs best. Series choices include four phases of school renewal topics:

1) Getting Back to Teaching

2) Expectations

3) Engagement

4) Empowerment.

As the 4-day series rolls out over the year, immediate signs of positive results prove that “getting back to teaching” is the catalyst needed to freshen teaching strategies and refresh student engagement. Recommended as a year-long Strategic PD Plan for Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring 2016-2017, these professional experiences are shown in a possible sequence, however, the four workshops are entirely interchangeable.
