AAIS Begins New Collaboration in Philadelphia

AAIS consultants will begin work with Roxborough High School
in the Philadelphia Public Schools during the 2016-17 school year
to provide support to increase the effectiveness of their academy
teams' instructional meeting processes and protocols. They will
also train team facilitators to enhance their leadership and
facilitation skills and provide teams with training on
interdisciplinary instructional planning to deepen their
academies' effectiveness in increasing student achievement.
Lastly, a strong focus on Teaching on the Block Schedule will build
the staff's knowledge and skills in working in 80-90 minute
blocks to provide structure for problem, project and inquiry-based
classroom instruction.
