Aligning Resources with Priorities:
      Leading the Instructional Program

Ensures that learning is at the centre of planning and resource management.

Articulate the ways in which TIPS, WINS, and CLIPS intrinsically align with and address priorities that, if treated separately, take time away from learning mathematics e.g., differentiated instruction; use of three-part lesson structure; teaching through problem solving; focus on posing powerful questions and responding to provide appropriate scaffolding and challenge; focus on communication; assessment for learning; effective uses of literacy strategies.
Help your teachers and coaches connect with MathGAINS professional learning activities.
