A Living, Breathing Curriculum: Atlas and PLC at Work FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

By leveraging the structures of Atlas and by effectively designing systems of curricular work within our school, AISG has been able to coordinate PLCs (professional learning communities), enhance conversations around the 4 primary questions of PLCs, and consistently map responses to these questions. Although AISG has different models of PLCs (vertically- and horizontally-aligned), Atlas has proved to be an efficient tool to support the different types of conversations they have around data, interventions and extensions for students, and curriculum development. In this session, participants will have the opportunity to interact with two different divisional approaches to using Atlas to map curriculum within a PLC framework, to reflect on the effectiveness of this system, and to consider the applicability of this system for their own school’s context.  

Key Take-Aways:
  1. How to use Atlas to map curriculum within a PLC framework. 
  2. Approaches to engage teachers in curriculum mapping both elementary and secondary levels.
  3. Applications to participants’ own school context.
