Thanks to those of you who attended Dr. Canady and my session at the annual conference of the Virgina Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development (VASCD) in Williamsburg, VA on Friday, December 5th.
As promised, I provide the files used in the session below:
Here’s the PowerPoint in 2003 format: K-12IE.ppt
Here’s the PowerPoint in 2007 format: K-12IE.pptx
Here are the elementary school I/E scheduling options presented in PDF format: Elementary I/E Schedules.
Here is the elementary school inclusion and I/E schedule presented in Excel format: Inclusion I/E Schedule.
Here are the 4-Block middle school I/E scheduling options presented in PDF format: 4-Block I/E Schedules.
Here is the draft Kate Collins I/E schedule presented in PDF format: Kate Collins Draft.
Here are the high school I/E bell schedules presented in Excel format: High School I/E.
During the session I mentioned two schedules that offer interesting ways to provide planning time in elementary and middle schools. Look at the blog entry above about a middle school that has alternating grade level and departmental planning Faiss Middle School.
Look at the blog entry above about an elementary school that provides an extended planning period of 80 minutes once weekly (in addition to shorter planning periods on other days) Henry Clay Elementary School.
Remember the caveat emphasized in the session: scheduling the I/E period is easy compared to structuring and utilizing the time effectively. We discuss this organization and use of the I/E period in great detail in chapter 4 of our new book Elementary School Scheduling: Enhancing Instruction for Student Achievement.
If you have questions, want to share an idea, or just want to say thanks for the materials let me know by posting a response here at the blog, or by sending a private email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
