Essential STEP Elements
Data & Measurement
STEP emphasizes the use of practical measurement with regard to student educational indicators, teacher practices, and teacher professional growth/effectiveness. Practical measurement prioritizes the usefulness of data, collected in a sound manner, to inform the team and help test assumptions and hypotheses as related to the challenge that the team identifies.
STEP introduces new approaches to facilitation that are easy to learn and that enhance the team’s coordination, relationship-building, trust, ownership of problems, self-organization, and innovation.
Context & Content Knowledge
Once a challenge has been identified, the STEP team will need to understand the knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, skills, and habits of mind necessary to identify potential solutions and implement them effectively
Leadership & Culture
STEP is committed to a process of “bottom up” change management and the top-down conditions that support and encourage teacher-led innovation.
