A Learning Community: Sherwood Academic Magnet Middle School

Sherwood teachers and administrators engage regularly during “eat and meet” lunch breaks where they review student progress, plan units of study, and discuss other academic matters. Hallways are arranged by content area to support impromptu, content-based interactions between teachers and students and among teachers. All teachers participate in regular team walkthroughs using a common form to observe and reflect and offer every teacher feedback. Staff use walkthrough data to identify areas of strength and need; administrators use them to identify professional development needs. Read the transcript of A Learning Community. Read the general introduction to Sherwood Academic Magnet Middle School.
