Transcript of Copy of Four Types of Schools: DuFour and Eaker

Four Types of Schools Based on the work of DuFour and Eaker The Charles Darwin School The Pontius Pilate School The Chicago Cubs Fans School The Henry Higgins School "When you start with an honest and diligent effort to determine the truth of the situation, the right decisions often become self-evident... You absolutely cannot make a series of good decisions without first confronting the brutal facts."
-Jim Collins, 2001 "Students' learning experiences...with weak teaching cultures are akin to an instructional lottery, in which their learning opportunities depend heavily on which teachers they draw, from class to class and year to year."
-Milbrey and McLaughlin & Joan Talbert, 2001 all kids can learn ? "We believe all kids can learn... based on their ability." The extent of learning is based on innate ability or aptitude
The aptitude is relatively fixed "We believe that all kids can learn...if they take advantage of the opportunity we give them to learn." We fulfill our responsibility when we present lessons that are both clear and engaging
It is our job to teach, and the student's job to learn
Hold students accountable for not doing what was necessary to learn by failing students "We believe all students can learn...something, and we will help all students experience academic growth in a warm and nurturing environment." Help students demonstrate some growth
Extent of growth determined by a student's innate ability and effort
We have little impact on those factors
The priority becomes ensuring students feel good rather than ensuring that they have learned "We believe that all kids can learn...and we will work to help all students achieve high standards of learning." All students must learn at relatively high levels of achievement
We establish standards all students are expected to achieve, and we continue to work with them until they have done so Our job is to create multiple programs or tracks that address the different abilities of the students Teachers have little influence over the extent of student learning Which school do you subscribe to?
