Teaching and Learning
Academic and Student Support Systems
Still inside the classroom, this presentation will report on the various ways that students are supported in their academic learning. Programs and methodologies which provide assistance for students who are struggling, or support for students who need extra time for learning will be profiled. The presentation will consider the supports for students beyond the classroom that seek to address other important needs of our students. Examples could include social work services, the Bridges program, and the Student Assistance Program.
How do our teachers learn about new developments in their profession? How do they hone their instructional skills and how do they learn to recognize student problems and assist students in their personal development? This month’s program will report on the professional development program at New Trier.
New Trier Teachers Leaders
The Assistant Superintendents will conduct an examination of how our staff leads within and beyond our school, and how teachers and other professionals contribute to educational conversations at the local, state, and national levels.
Bringing the focus back to the initial and ending experiences in high school, this report will concentrate on transitions from 8th to 9th grade, and from senior year to post-high school. One section will discuss the freshman experience and another part will cover the transition from high school to college. How does New Trier support students in those important transitions into and out of high school?
