The Science of Teaching

Test Results and the “Science” of Teaching

Monthly parent meetings with Superintendent Bo Gutzwiller—called “Coffees with Mr. G”— never fail to provide engaging opportunities for dialogue. Informal and interactive best characterizes this time when parents come to learn and participate in meaningful discussion; and school administrators come to share new findings in a setting that welcomes parent feedback. Last month’s topic, for example, highlighted Terra Nova student test results and ways in which parents can translate and utilize the information to benefit their child’s education. In earlier times, education was principally regarded as the “art of teaching,” Mr. Gutzwiller explained. In recent years we have seen a shift to include the “science of teaching,” knowing how to interpret data and test scores to enhance the ability of educators and parents to make informed decisions about a child’s learning profile. The last session was recorded for delayed broadcast, you can view it here…

One of the auction items at last year’s golf tournament was ‘Lunch with Mr. G’, which the students cashed in today. Save the date and plan to join us for this year’s tournament on May 14th at South Hills Country Club! Yesterday our team was able to provide 50 moms with diapers/wipes/baby clothes and over 100 families with groceries and over 150 people with medical care at the clinic. Our team is soaking it all in and debriefing every night to discuss what they’re feeling and learning. #drtrip2018 Our medical clinic saw 98 patients today! Our students served food, distributes shoes, played with kids, painted nails, and ultimately shared the love of Christ with children at the Manny Mota Foundation today. Read more... link in profile. FCS alumni, Sophia Lorey, was so impacted by her 8th grade trip to the DR that she returned this year, her senior year of high school, with our team! Read about her experience today on the blog!
