In previous articles, Educational Frameworks have been looked at from an administrator and teacher perspective and have shown how implementing one at your school can unify a staff and help to create a cohesive teaching culture. And if you wanted to stop there, you could as the effects alone of a staff that is working together to achieve common goals is impactful enough – but what if you were interested in taking things further and incorporating students and/or parents within the framework, could this be done? Absolutely. Supposing we take the Language Framework below as an example.
In looking at the framework, one will note that its purpose is to illustrate how curriculums connect through language, not how people connect to one another, therefore when designing the accompanying individualized planners, it can apply to staff, students and/or parents. And the advantage of this? Imagine if you could connect an entire school and its community so they could work together towards achieving common objectives – to give you an idea of what this would look like when all the planners are in place, the generalized diagram below depicts how staff, student and parent templates could line up within a framework.
If student and/or parent planners are something your school is interested in, stayed tuned for upcoming articles that will demonstrate how they can be developed. Feel like you may need some support?
