TOA

MNPS Literacy Reimagined Theory of Action

  • If… MNPS develops an evidence-based Literacy Framework and strategic plan and implements the plan through vertical coherence and aligned supports,
  • Then… teachers will be equipped and empowered to plan and implement meaningful, content-rich instruction that is ambitious, equitable, and SEL-integrative,
  • So… that students will develop meaningful connections with the content, each other, and themselves as critical thinkers and life-long learners,
  • Which… will improve instructional leadership, and student outcomes.

  • Provided the same tools to support collaborative planning, data analysis, and feedback resources
  • Set clear expectations for instructional leadership moves that promote strong implementation of the Literacy Framework and instructional materials
