SIP+ En. Azudin and SISC+ Miss Mirinda’s joint visit today to the two DTP-AMAN schools on Pulau Tuba focussed on sharing progress at each school during the first half year.
SLT and MLT at each school were updated about the DTP-AMAN PPD- led Transformation(PLT) team from PPD Langkawi before sharing how the school was monitoring 2019 Plan Tactical progress.
Focussing on each school’s Strategic Plan provides a common point for professional dialogue. The role of both SIP+ and SISC+ is to provide support for SLT and MLT to improve their current systems, processes and practices resulting in better student outcomes.
SMK Langkawi collaborate with their DTP-AMAN support team.
Positive interaction between SK Pulau Tuba SLT/MLT and SIP+/SISC+
Different approaches for documenting instructional leadership practices were shared as well as how each school was analysing recent student assessments and planning for next steps. A focus on PBD is currently high priority at both schools with LW and peer coaching followed up by PLC part of the process to support teachers.
Both schools will also be supported to hold dialog prestasi at the school level in July.
While island life might be slower than life in a big city, helping to improve student and school outcomes is still “core business” and #1 priority for the PLT team at PPD Langkawi.
The day finally arrived after much planning and preparation by PLT team.
Facilitators SISC+ Zainab and Mirinda with PPD officer Ismail skillfully took the SIO through the key aspects of Instructional Leadership linking this to KPM’s vision.
The SIO explored what makes an effective learning environment in preparation for determining how SLT and ML can use LW and PLC to improve classroom practice.
For visiting LeapEd DTP-AMAN coaches, it was interesting to see the PLT cascading the knowledge, skills and approaches they themselves had experienced just a few weeks ago during C3 PLT CPD.
Next steps are for SIO to coach the SLT and ML in their designated schools to implement LW and PLC over the next few weeks.
PLT team members are collaborating well to plan for an engaging workshop to share their learnings from C3 PLT CPD about Learning Walks and PLCs as part of Instructional Leadership. Under SKPMg2 Std 1.1 and 1.2, SLT have a key role to coach and mentor their staff as leaders of learning in their school. In order to support SLT and ML, the SIO have to ensure they have a common, deep understanding of Instructional Leadership.
Some of the PLT team activities over the past two weeks to prepare for the workshop include:
– follow up, follow through (FUFT) visits to SLT and ML to discuss the school’s action plans for LW and PLCs
– offering workshop to all PPD officers on how to use google form to create surveys for data collection
– collaborative PLT team planning for the SIO workshop
– working alongside SK Bayas and SMK Tunku Putra SLT and ML to plan for LW involving LeapEd DTP-AMAN coaches, SLT and ML, and PPD officers focussing on positive learning environment and use of questioning techniques to encourage student thinking
Tomorrow is the culmination of all this pre- work. The SIO workshop #2 should be a great success judging by the efforts of the PLT team.
