San Antonio ISD provides an exciting collection of Teacher Resources, both online and on campus, to support and enhance classroom instruction and are designed to assist educators in the development and implementation of a rigorous curriculum.

The Instructional model organizes and aligns the SAISD vision into a high-level plan that embodies what we want for our students in the future and today’s classrooms. One of the understandings is the role of 21st Century Learning competencies: critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication.

 

The Instructional Model is based on four primary components 1) a Learner-Centered Environment to include goal setting and learner profiles; 2) Flexible Pedagogical Practices to Increase Rigor such as using the GRR Framework and inquiry-based instruction; 3) Meaningful and Relevant Curriculum and Assessment that is standards-based and offers personalized and blended learning opportunities; and 4) Safe and Caring Environment that emphasizes a culturally inclusive and relationship-oriented classroom.

 

An integral part of this instructional model is how curriculum and instruction embeds the technology-based standards as part of the instructional planning and pedagogical delivery of instruction to engage students in relevant 21st Century Learning Skills found in the Technology Applications Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills and that are embodied in the Graduate profile (see image below).

Fountas and Pinnell Electronic Form

Fountas and Pinnell - Boys Reading

A NEW Fountas & Pinnell electronic form developed in-house (SAISD Data Warehouse)to support the record keeping and reporting of the F&P reading records is now available here.

 

The electronic version is identical in appearance to the print folders that are currently being used by teachers. This e-form resides within a Fountas & Pinnell SharePoint and is accessible only to SAISD teachers and administrators. The F&P SharePoint site is designed to have the student ID self-populate any information previously entered by teachers once the e-form is initially created.

 

Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS)

San Antonio ISD is committed to the success of every student and recognizes that because each student is unique, a "one size fits all" educational program is insufficient to meet the needs of all of our students.

 

Some students will need different supports than others, and fulfilling this charge will necessitate a team-work and "all in" approach.  The research is clear- problem-solving and data-based decision-making in collaboration with colleagues is the most effective approach to improve outcomes for diverse student populations. (Fullan, 2016).

 

The Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) Handbook is available here.

 

The Multi-Tiered System of Support training module in Eduphoria is available here.
