SETTING UP A GUIDED READING PROGRAM ACROSS GRADE LEVELS

For Administrators/Coordinators - The Guided Reading Program at the Netherlands Inter-community School was originally designed to accommodate shifting student needs (triggered by a decrease in the student body), and was the ideal solution for our school. But this program could also work at schools that have multiple classes of the same grade.

THE POWER OF PLANNERS

For Administrators/Coordinators - Planners are a powerful educational tool when used properly. Planners can transform the way teachers think and teach, inspiring them to grow and develop a deeper understanding of a school’s philosophy and vision.

THE EARLY YEARS FRAMEWORK

For Administrators/Coordinators - The vision for this framework was to design and document an Emergent Curriculum that follows the principles of the Reggio Emilio philosophy, is guided by the Early Years Foundational Stages (EYFS) milestones, and uses the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for ESL and Modern Foreign Language benchmarks. The implementation of this custom designed framework will have a huge impact on a school and its’ environment, transforming it into a genuine Reggio-inspired community of learners at all levels and across all subject areas.

THE TRANSITIONAL FRAMEWORK

For Administrators/Coordinators - The Transitional Framework was originally designed for the Papuan government, which had established a scholarship program for Indonesian students who qualified to study at English-speaking universities; however, the concept of this framework can be applied universally. 

THE LANGUAGE FRAMEWORK

For Administrators/Coordinators - My task as Language Coordinator at the Netherlands Inter-community School was to connect every subject taught at the school to language - the vision was the whole language umbrella. The Language Framework is based on this vision of the language umbrella, and all the decisions I made while creating the Language Framework supported this vision. A few months after it was implemented, the framework became the foundation of the school, and the impact on the students and student learning was simply stunning.

WHAT IS AN EDUCATIONAL FRAMEWORK?

For Administrators/Coordinators - What is a framework? The Canadian Oxford Dictionary defines a framework as “an essential supporting structure or a basic system. At a school, a framework is the most essential supporting educational structure, and when designed correctly, it becomes the foundation upon which everything else is built.
