Cutting-Edge Instructional Strategies
Lake Shore Public Schools has invested in extensive teacher training with Susan Kovalik, a nationally renowned researcher on the brain as it relates to teaching and learning. This training has resulted in teachers who understand “how the brain learns,” which has led to outstanding success in the classroom.
Lake Shore teachers continually translate brain research into the classroom by implementing the Nine Bodybrain-Compatible Elements of Susan Kovalik’s ITI Model. On a daily basis students in our classrooms experience:
- Nurturing/Reflective Thinking
- Meaningful Content
- Enriched Environment
- Adequate Time
- Immediate Feedback
- Mastery and Application
In addition to these high-caliber classroom strategies, Lake Shore has also implemented Professional Learning Communities as a means of ensuring that all students are reaching grade level benchmarks.
All K-12 Lake Shore teachers meet in grade level/content area teams bi-monthly to discuss the progress of individual students, the effectiveness of lessons, trends in student data, and intervention strategies for struggling students. This collaborative process allows teachers the time and resources to focus their instruction so it meets the needs of each and every student
