  Westside Elementary School Mission Statement

Excellence, Every Student, Every Day.

CIP Team Members: All Westside Licensed Staff

Problem of Practice:

During direct instruction what evidence do we have that students are actively engaged with the material?  What strategies do we use to actively engage students in learning?

  • How are they being held accountable?  
  • Who’s doing the work?
  • Teacher to student strategies?
  • Student to student strategies?
  • Elapsed time between check-ins?
  • What does the teacher do when students do not appear to be engaged?
  • How frequently are students given an opportunity to demonstrate understanding?
