Leadership and Design Team Institute Showcase

May 20, 2008

On May 15th the Washtenaw Intermediate School District hosted the Leadership and Design Team Institute Showcase. The event had 47 exhibits from around the county. Each exhibit highlighted local district projects based around five strands: Adolescent Literacy, School Improvement, Instructional Consultation Teams, High School Transformation and Equity.

I was very proud of the three Saline exhibits. Heritage School’s booth was titled “Focus on Reading” and was hosted by Ms. Jane McKie. The exhibit described the efforts by the staff to use common reading strategies and vocabulary to teach their students.

The Middle School’s booth was titled “Building a Community of Readers” was hosted by Ms. Laurie Erby and Ms. Jennifer Nelson. The exhibit highlighted the implementation of the Reading Apprenticeship framework. They detailed the increase in student reading comprehension and noted the increase in effective dialogue with literacy.

“The Freshman Transition Process” was our high school display and was hosted by Ms. Laura Washington. The program focused on supporting incoming freshman. Upper classman are selected to teach the freshman lessons on time management and organization. The program included the popular “Cocoa and Cram” event to support studying for the end of semester exams.
