Update on Quality Instruction at Glamorgan School

​Within teacher Professional Learning Communities (PLC) grade groups have been structured this school year to focus their learning and conversation on Mathematics. This work started with a school wide administration of the Math Intervention Programming Instrument (MIPI). These results were shared with teachers, and PLC groupings were then structured to have the grade group determine the greatest areas of gap from which to begin to develop further strategies, to support students to learn the concepts. Student work has been central to, and on the table, for teacher discussion to occur.
 
As a school we have now had a chance to review our recent Report Card data. Through this analysis we know further which students require additional support, and also we recognize that some students need to be further challenged. It is through the gap analysis of the MIPI and Report Card data, that as a school we are further strategizing to support your children. Some parents have or in the future will be receiving emailed letters to outline our Response to Intervention (RTI) for your awareness and support, with either mathematics or literacy. In partnership we again thank you for your support. Teaching staff is also working upon providing opportunities for student enrichment. As a school staff we are working diligently to ensure that the students in their care are being challenged, and supported, with their learning. 
 
With the arrival of Spring comes opportunity to remind students of our school wide expectations. These include all aspects of being at school and in our community. The work that we put into building a positive community is the solid foundation for all the academic growth we work toward. Please continue to assist us by reviewing the Student Expectations posted at the front of their Agenda (Grade K – 6), and also the Junior High Student Expectations which are posted by teachers on D2L. I thank you for your continued support to assist us to make Glamorgan School the very best it can be and to also promote that your child(ren) are extending themselves to be the best that they can be, to meet their individual potential.
 
Just recently a group of teachers signed up for a book study. We chose to read Mathematical Mindsets ‘Unleashing Students’ POTENTIAL Through Creative math, Inspiring Messages and INNOVATIVE TEACHING’ written by Jo Boaler. The study of the Brain and Mathematical Learning will assist us as teachers to continue to address the potential of our students, and look into the strategies to consider which could assist many of our students to have a growth mindset in mathematics, whereas they will, approach mathematics with confidence and enthusiasm. We are very excited about continuing to work to further develop the capacity of all of our teachers, teach them possibilities for developing rich mathematical tasks for their students, and determining next best steps for all students to be better prepared to accept having a growth mindset for Mathematics. Mathematics is a CBE District requirements for all School Development Plans and requires our additional efforts to ensure that gaps are reduced and that continued growth is maintained. 
 
Parents, please visit http://www.cbe.ab.ca/glamorgan often. The calendar will be updated as the months progress and activities become confirmed.
 
I thank you for your continued support of Glamorgan School.​
