Newton-Conover is blessed with an amazing group of teacher leaders who support curriculum and instruction decisions at the district level. Last year, the group was engaged in answering the question, “What does good instruction look like?” They read Hattie’s Visible Learning and engaged in discourse around how quality instruction should be defined and what strategies are most beneficial to students.
This summer the N-CCS Curriculum Council received training on the Instructional Core Framework that will be a focus in each school this year. These teacher leaders from your school provided important feedback and suggestions to the training that each of you will receive on August 24 and throughout the year. The N-CCS Curriculum Council meets monthly to provide input on curricular decisions and engage in ongoing training to support teaching and learning in all schools.
