Developing the Leaders of Tomorrow…
Come Experience the AILA Difference…
“Our greatest natural resource
is the minds of our children.”
AILA believes that great instruction results from innovation and collaboration. We are developing the leaders of tomorrow within…
To enable our teachers and leaders to benefit from the collective knowledge and learning occurring across AILA, we invest in creating frameworks and tools that provide a common language and facilitate the exchange of effective practice.
THE FOUR ELEMENTS OF EXCELLENT TEACHING ARE:
Self and Others
Excellent teaching requires understanding of oneself, one’s connection to others, and a growth mindset that allows the teacher to take ownership for the success of all AILA students.
Self & Others
In an excellent classroom culture, the teacher focuses on countless tangible and intangible details in the space to create an environment where students are joyfully engaged, meaningfully on-task, and feel ownership for their individual and collective successes in their academic career and in life.
The Teaching Cycle
Excellent teaching means planning and executing rigorous, engaging lessons that fit into a logical scope and sequence, as well as using student data to assess mastery of objectives and movement toward big goals for student achievement and growth. Excellent teaching requires a highly trained mindset, recognizing that even the tiniest details can dramatically impact student mastery.
The Teaching Cycle
Teaching is an art and science. As the artists and scientists, we are responsible for building our understanding of child development, pedagogy, and content. We are responsible for knowing what we are teaching, how it fits with our values, and who we are teaching it to.
