what is staar4ward?
The staar4ward leading learning series is designed to help leadership teams move to action.Leading learning and maintaining instructional focus and ongoing support for teachers are critical to ensuring that students meet performance and progress expectations. The staar4ward leading learning series is designed to help leadership teams move to action. Based on content from STAAR 3Di and STAAR Leading Relevant Review 2015, the leading learning series provides leadership teams with a year-long structure – paced a month at a time. Leadership teams will participate in monthly live webinars (recorded for later use with eGuides for data analysis components), each focused around a particular leadership topic that will frame leadership expectations each month.
Each webinar includes a customizable CARE action plan highlighting:
- Communicating monthly expectations
- Analyzing state and local data (using two tools: heat maps and quintiles)
- Reviewing components of instruction and assessment
- Examining examples of how others have adapted the tools to meet their own needs
