Here are the 2015-16 SIM K-12 math goals and plans for The Dufferin- Peel Catholic District School Board. These goals and plans are organized by Family of Schools. For more information click on each logo.
SIM Goal for Mississauga North Family of Schools:
What is the impact on the student/teacher learning when we use a deeper analysis of the diagnostic math assessment to inform responsive instruction?
SIM Goal for Mississauga South Family of Schools:
How can we use evidence about our students’ learning needs to design effective learning experiences built on evidence-based instructional strategies that meet these students’ needs and then monitor the impact on learning and achievement?
SIM Goal for Mississauga East Family of Schools:
If we provide opportunities for all learners to collaborate and share effective practices, then, we create conditions that will empower learner voice, build knowledge and address learner needs.
SIM Goal for Mississauga Brampton Central Family of Schools:
If we work collaboratively to increase effective Mathematics Instruction, specifically in consolidation, then all learners will improve communication and application of their thinking, leading to a growth mindset and student achievement.
SIM Goal for Brampton West Family of Schools:
If within our instruction of mathematics, we access conversations, observations and products that inform our understanding of learner need and use this information to develop our math program and if we challenge ourselves and support each other to promote a growth mindset, by developing Catholic conditions for learning, all learners will increase efficacy and success in mathematics.
SIM Goal for Brampton North East Family of Schools:
If we focus on conditions for learning in the mathematics classroom students will demonstrate increased confidence, risk taking and effective communication leading to improved achievement in mathematics.
SIM Goal for Brampton East, Caledon, Dufferin, Malton Family of Schools:
If we identify and develop a growth mindset in teachers and learners (for example, through collaborative inquiries, co-teaching, co-learning, co-planning, 3 part Math lessons) then we will see an increase in student engagement which will result in improved Math achievement for all students.
