Francine Grannell and John Lawrence, leaders from Skaneateles School District, share how they narrowed their focus to strategically support teachers and students with year one Wit & Wisdom ELA implementation. Educators used NY State Briefs (like this one on Complex Texts) to understand and thoughtfully engage in research-based practices within the curricula.
District and school leaders provided wraparound strategic support for teachers: professional learning communities, horizontal and vertical planning time, and collaboration and resources. In turn, teachers felt more empowered to discuss deeper questions than ever before. They held strong with a “trust the process” mantra, modeled a learner-mindset, and reflected on their successes and challenges to grow stronger heading into year two.
