School Plan for Deeper Learning As an elementary school principal, I am in our 2nd year of our deeper learning plan roll out using The Planning Guide by Monica R. Martinez. I learnt about the Deeper Learning School Plan approach at the Deeper Learning Conference at High Tech High in San Diego California. Theory of Action: If a culture in which educators and students trust and respect one another and feel responsible for each other’s success as learners is established; and teachers function as professionals in a collaborative community, then teachers can design or adapt learning experiences that are meaningful to students which will lead students to regularly engage in acquiring and applying knowledge and skills through the deliberate practice of Deeper Learning outcomes. This will result in students leaving school with the knowledge of how, why, and when to apply content knowledge and a set of non-cognitive skills to answer questions and solve problems related to the challenges of life (knowledge transfer). 4 Components of the Theory of Action (Understand & Assess) 1. Establish a Strong School Culture 2. Teachers Function as Professionals in a Collaborative Community 3. Teachers Design Meaningful Learning Experiences 4. Deliberate Practice of Deeper Learning Skills To move us through this plan, we have been integrating the following areas of focus: • Growth Mindset – Carol Dweck • Leaders of their Own Learning: Transforming Schools Through Student-Engaged Assessment) – by Ron Berger • Student Goal Setting & Learning Targets • Project Tuning using Protocol
