Responsive Instruction in Quality Learning Environments

Posted on:

Building a culture of excellence through Quality Learning Environments (QLE)!

NGPS QLE Leadership Team meets in Whitecourt to further QLE work in the domain of Responsive Instruction.

Responsive Instruction considers the needs of all learners so they can achieve success, and is one of five domains under Quality Pedagogy in NGPS Quality Learning Environments (QLE). With responsive instruction, the teacher is flexible in the delivery of instruction and adapts to ensure student engagement and understanding, through the effective use of research-proven best practices.

“For me, one of the most valuable parts of our exploration of QLE is the process of self-reflection on my own practices and beliefs as a teacher. We can all find areas for growth as we delve deeper into the domains of Quality Learning Environments!” Trina Lamarre, Teacher, Grasmere School

Quality Learning Environments are one way Northern Gateway school leaders and educators enhance quality learning for all students. The work entails an ongoing commitment to professional growth and development of teachers and school leaders in ensuring that strong universal instructional practices across our diverse communities are developed, shared and practiced. Through ongoing work and commitment, our educators and school communities can ensure quality pedagogy serves as a foundation for quality learning and highly impactful and effective instructional and leadership practice within NGPS schools.

The five domains of quality pedagogy:

  • The Engaged Professional
  • Purposeful Assessment
  • Intentional Planning
  • Positive Classroom Culture
  • Responsive Instruction

Learning for Life. Together.

Clearly articulating the dimensions of Quality Learning Environments is essential to ensuring strong universal instructional practices across Northern Gateway. The development of NGPS' QLE is guided by a divisional Steering Team of administrators and faciliated by our colleagues and partners at Jigsaw Learning jigsawlearning.ca. Jigsaw Learning is an educational team of exemplary educators and leaders dedicated to leading learners, supporting schools and enriching education. Jigsaw consultants have been a vital part of our QLE professional development, as well in the areas of Literacy and Numeracy development within NGPS schools.
