Academic Olympics

With the advent of the upcoming Winter Olympics in Seoul, South Korea, I thought it would be a great idea if we could use our great Math data visualizations for all of the school districts in Santa Clara County to host an Academic Olympics for our County.  It will add some joie de vivre to our celebration of the Olympics.

Over the course of the next couple of weeks, I will be adding academic events.  Each event will highlight one of the transition grades of 5, 8, or 11.  Each event will award medals for Overall Performance (Compulsories) as well as Improved Performance (Free Style).

Feel free to come back to the site frequently as events are posted. Contact me if you would like to learn fun ways to celebrate the Academic Olympics within your school district or at your school!  I look forward to working with your team to build events for professional practices!  That will be when the real fun begins!

This is an absolutely free service to the community with no expectation of business or remuneration.

Dr. Conrad played a key role in planning and facilitating monthly leadership team meetings where principals and teacher leaders engaged in the careful evaluation of both student outcomes and professional practices.  He created a positive culture of collaborative competition where principals and teacher leaders compared, and learned from the results from their colleagues.  Teams aligned their school improvement initiatives with our comprehensive District. Under Bill’s leadership, school teams developed 6-week action plans as well as a monitoring system to continuously evaluate and improve professional practices and student outcomes.

We collaborated on a professional development plan that involved the remote facilitation (GoToMeeting) of one-hour sessions where Bill used an Explicit Teaching Model to engage teacher leaders in understanding the 5 key early literacy initiatives as well as how to teach and assess these elements within their classrooms. His presentations were always very engaging and he used visualizations that made the 5 key elements easily understandable.  He also supported the teacher leaders in learning how to effectively collaborate with other teachers in teaching and assessing these elements within their classrooms.
