Instructional Strategies and Core Pedagogies Take Shape in Classrooms

Data-driven Instructional Practices

Instruction based on determined data conclusions is the primary driving force behind all teaching and learning at the Burnside Academy. Two standard vehicles are used to guide instruction based on the results of criterion-referenced and norm-referenced assessments' Weekly instructional planning is facilitated through data-based lesson plan templates in order to assist teachers in prioritizing small-group instruction based on data conclusions derived from the most current data sources.

In addition, the annual Burnside Action Plan is created through a collaborative effort involving the entire faculty and the Burnside leadership team. Best practice instructional strategies are developed with the use of student achievement data from a variety of sources that delineate the most prevalent learning gaps as expressed through a wide variety of assessment results. The implementation of the Action Plan is monitored continually through the weekly submission of summary reports that document lesson delivery.
