In an earlier webinar, John Wink shared his Excellence in Every Classroom framework (EIEC), and how teachers can reach excellence through the Hierarchy of Learning. In this edWeb.net webinar presented by the Leadership 3.0 community, John returned to challenge educators to kick off the new school year with more clarity and support within the EIEC framework by: Leveraging technology to provide 24/7 professional learning for educators; Ensuring consistency from classroom to classroom in the school-wide expectations for behavior and learning; Developing relationships with all students in the first 20 days of school; Optimizing instructional time so that students can reach more rigorous levels of cognitive engagement.
School improvement can’t exist until the learning of educators becomes the constant. Teachers all across America are working hard, but some fail while others excel. To reach the goal of “No Child Left Behind,” it starts with saving every teacher first. Excellence in Every Classroom (EIEC) is a philosophy that leaders employ to save every kid by making teacher learning the preferred tool of school improvement.
