#leadlap Archive

Our chat will focus on the idea that we can lead and make positive change from any position in our school systems. Leadership is not about a title, it is a way of thinking and acting.

    A1: It starts with that first day...do you have a regular staff meeting or do you create an experience, an adventure? If we want teachers to be inventive, we as site leaders need to jump in first! #leadLAP

  • mellomama6 Mar 31 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    Happy Easter weekend! Amy from CA #LeadLAP
  • JayBilly2 Mar 31 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1: First and foremost you must try to connect and get to know each student. Building culture is about relationships and trust. Start the year with fun and relationship building activities #LeadLAP
  • KarmenLogan Mar 31 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    Karmen-principal from Waco, Tx excited to join in with book in hand. #LeadLAP
  • DisruptedTv Mar 31 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    #leadlap Q1 It's always good to start by asking the students to explain the"great problem" they plan or hope to address or solve. This gives the teachers a reference when designing lessons for the year.
  • Rdene915 Mar 31 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1 Start by working on the relationships, get to know the Ss, them to know each other, activities to build connections and comfort, I spend a lot more time on this starting day 1 #leadlap #EDUProtocols

  • MMakhoul1 Mar 31 @ 10:38 AM EDT

  • SarahSajohnson Mar 31 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    Love the idea of creating an experience or adventure. It's the #leadlap way!

  • SpEdTeachLove Mar 31 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1: It's the same for each venue: Classroom-give every Ss a choice and voice; In PD-give every Ts a choice and voice! #LeadLap
  • KVoge71 Mar 31 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1 One goal I have for myself is to really build a culture of sharing, WE-ness, OUR kids, etc. Going to harness the power of #flipgrid for weekly district dialogue topics for teachers. Model giving teachers a voice since we want to amplify student voice #leadlap #educprotocols
  • mhebern Mar 31 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1: I like to bring the big year end events where kids bond to the beginning of the year. The swim party, the class trip, the big project. #EduProtocols #LeadLap
  • abney45 Mar 31 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1: We encourage our teachers to build relationships and create collaborative commitments with each of their classes. Those that truly buy into it find that they have fewer issues. You may lose a class day to get it done, but saves so much work down the line. #LeadLAP
  • burgessdave Mar 31 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1: In the Rapport chapter of #tlap I have a whole section devoted to "My First 3 Days." Investing time at the start of the year to build culture will pay dividends ALL YEAR LONG. (and Day 1 is Play Doh! Makers not memorizers!) #LeadLAP #EDUProtocols

  • CoriOrlando1 Mar 31 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1: #cultureovercuricculum Take the time at the beginning of the year to build collaborative community of trust & belonging- before jumping into content. W/O much content could be missed. #leadlap #eduprotocols
  • fourmonkeypress Mar 31 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1. If you’re gonna talk the talk you must walk the walk, baby. Positivity needs to be modeled and authentic. #LeadLAP
  • heatherT_hooks Mar 31 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    This year I started by spending the first two weeks a building classroom community. I usually jump right in to curriculum. It made all the difference in students coming together faster and getting beyond their shyness. #leadlap #EduProtocols #tlap

    Like this. Get them thinking right away! #LeadLAP

    Awesome! We can't ask Ts to create experiences & adventures in their own classrooms if it doesn't fit with a stale culture. #LeadLAP #EDUProtocols
    In reply to @tsschmidty
  • BobbieFrench Mar 31 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1- Relationships 1st (and 2nd)... build relationships with T's and S's.. make the first day exciting and memorable. For Staff, I modeled lots of new ways to First Day- T's used lots of those ideas in their classrooms... #LeadLAP #Eduprotocol

  • coacheagan Mar 31 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1: first step is intentionally getting to know your Ss and setting up a classroom where failing is encouraged, growth mindset and being willing to try is encouraged #leadlap
  • TedHiff Mar 31 @ 10:39 AM EDT

  • MRickermann Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1. As a leader I encourage my teachers to forget the class rules review and take the time to learn about your kids, but more importantly let them learn about you. Let your students see that you are a real person and you will invest in them. #leadlap
  • Nikcal88 Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1: I have used the First Six Weeks of School since I began teaching, and while I don't use the exact format anymore, I still spend that entire month team building with games, practicing collaboration, making our class expectations together, and sharing our goals #LeadLAP
  • principledlady Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1: Allowing our stories to be shared helps us all see how connected we really are. Heart connections lead to great culture #leadLAP
  • HSlatoff Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1: Each new start should begin with an adventure! Let’s excite teacher instead of talk at them. #leadlap
  • DCulberhouse Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    Create a culture where learning cascades across the whole of the organization, at all levels. One built upon trust & psychological safety that allows for experimentation & discovery learning, greater idea flows (internal/external), & positive candor. #leadlap

  • tlouvier0609 Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    Q1: As a 1st g T, we learn names at the beginning of the year and learn about our friends. Was glad to see I was doing something right. We also sing We Are Family everyday and I keep a poster with that in my classroom to refer to. #LEADLAP #EDUPROTOCOLS

  • JayBilly2 Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1: As a Teacher, I'd what them to trust me but I'd also want them to know that this year, this experience is going to be nothing like anything they've ever encountered #LeadLAP
  • chadw675 Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1: Next year’s plan is to kick off with discussion about building vision, culture, and discuss commitments and non-negotiables. An important conversation to build a strong building culture. #LeadLAP
  • tsocko Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1: start with an activity that makes it clear I care about them as people and am invested in learning who they are. Syllabus and classroom “rules” are never the focus of the start. #leadlap #eduprotocols
  • LindaEdwardsi Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1 Devloping a relationship with every student is key. But, you also must promote relationships Student to student. Thankfully my students are very supportive of each other 😀 #LeadLAP
  • SteinbrinkLaura Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    @burgess_shelley #LeadLAP
  • RichHayzler Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1:As a leader you need to develop a positive culture among your teachers. When teachers work together it builds a stronger culture in every classroom. Culture starts with the leader of the building. Start the year with team building activities and "together time." #leadlap
  • artFling Mar 31 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1 - Listen. Find out what makes them tick. Listen to that. Talk about that. Ask about that. Be welcoming. Learn how to do favors for them based on what they like. Delight. #leadlap

    I think we also have to help bust the myth that creativity is something huge. Often times it is simply small changes to what we do, the questions we ask, the set up of the lesson that can spark more student creativity. #LeadLAP

      A5: Think/Pair/Share is a form of retrieval, which is an excellent way for students to metacognitively understand how learning occurs. Any form of retrieval, when information must be brought out of the brain, helps this #LeadLAP

    Q5: I think teachers create new protocols all the time. The problem lies in the inability to share what happens behind those closed classroom doors. Leaders need to help open the doors and let Ts share the great things they do. #leadlap

    Protocols and process must drive any lesson. These must be established collaboratively with your students. When there is two way trust in processes classrooms have no limits. #leadlap

    Couldn't agree more. Ts will get caught up in having to blow up their entire lesson. I'll often ask them to focus on the questions they ask, and what might happen if they changed their questions. #LeadLAP

    A:5 Not sure I've created my own protocols--perhaps my Math360 Math Morning Review (complete with sweet music), but I'm all in with Iron Chef and 3-Act tasks. So nice to be able to focus on the content and not teaching them how to show their understanding all the time #leadlap

    A5: After doing a literacy lab site at our school, my team saw firsthand how ineffective think-pair-share was. Kids are just waiting to speak, they aren't listening at all. In addition, the time is so minimal usually the talker of the pair is the only one sharing. #LeadLAP
  • MMakhoul1 Mar 31 @ 11:21 AM EDT
