The Model Classrooms Project (MCP)
The Model Classrooms Project's primary goal is to bring about increased levels of student success through campus-wide or district-wide instructional alignment. Through brief staff development sessions, educators learn to refine their instructional techniques in the six MCP categories: content, thinking, product, assessment, facilitation and reflection. Through ongoing organizational development, educators coordinate their efforts vertically across grade levels and horizontally across subjects or departments to bring about consistency and predictability for their students. The process of teaching gradually becomes more efficient because teachers develop a common language and common practices throughout the agency. The process of learning becomes more efficient because much of the "mystery" is eliminated from students' daily lessons.
The Model Classrooms Project is now available on video. Enrollment in the MCP Video Academy will provide your campus with job embedded, professional learning, on demand, 24/7 – handouts included. PLC, faculty, department and grade level meetings can now have structure and content, and instructional coaches now have tools to guide teacher growth. With more than 20 videos broken into 15 - 30 minute focused sessions, teachers can take new information and strategies directly into the classroom, try them out, review, refine and share with colleagues.
