High Impact Strategies Training:
Prior to student teaching, I attended a two day training on high impact strategies utilized in learning focused schools. The first day consisted of employing these high impact strategies through active engagement and rigor in the classroom. The second day consisted of writing lesson plans using the learning focused format.
This training was extremely beneficial. It provided me with simplistic strategies to use in the classroom and promoted the importance of active engagement and rigor, both of which were emphasized in my school. Additionally, I made sure my lesson plans followed the LFS format for consistency in how new concepts were introduced to my students.
