Creating an Instructional Playbook for SIM
The SIM learning strategies, routines, and other high-impact strategies are designed to improve student achievement and well-being. But if professional developers and coaches want to effectively support teachers so that SIM is implemented effectively, they need to have a deep understanding of the practices they share with teachers. For this reason, we recommend professional developers create instructional playbooks that include one-page summaries and checklists for the practices they share. In this session, participants will learn about the elements of instructional playbooks and then create many of the parts of their own playbook. The act of creating an instructional playbook enables professional developers to have the knowledge they need to be effective; this workshop ensures that coaches know how to create such a playbook.
All of the General Education and Special Education HLPs are relevant to this session.
