Positively impact student learning with strategies your professional learning community can implement immediately Beyond Theory shows you how to: - Develop a Continuous Improvement Plan with clear learning objectives and goals - Schedule your school day, grading period and school year to make the most of instructional time - Provide focused topics for staff and professional learning community meetings - Collect and disaggregate data meaningful to the learning process - Create and maintain a school culture where everyone is on the same page The Eight-Cylinder Reform Model (ECRM) is a collection of eight overarching concepts that when collectively put into motion will benefit all stakeholders in an educational community. ECRM puts theory into practical and realistic practice through shared experience, real-life examples, templates and processes designed to advance overall school improvement. Tested across grade levels and varying demographics, the strategies and processes can be applied to any school setting. The first year of using ECRM strategies allowed Scott Taylor's Crestwood Elementary to go from 34% to 74% proficient in reading and 56% to 81% proficient in math and ultimately a National Blue Ribbon School. Tyrone Olverson, Cathy Barnes and Scott Taylor collectively bring together over 75 years of classroom, supervisory and administrative experience in schools across the United States. Their track record for attaining high achievement across settings provides irrefutable proof their ECRM will improve student learning, build a sustainable culture of high performance, and create a strong and accountable environment within any classroom and school.
