DIRECT INSTRUCTION

Direct Instruction is a research-based comprehensive school reform model that consists of carefully scripted lessons, backed by texts and workbooks. It is supported by over 40 years of research and has been consistently rated as one of the most effective comprehensive school reform models..When implemented properly, students attain reading, writing, and math skills beyond their current grade level in a relatively short amount of time. BCP brought Direct Instruction to Baltimore City Schools in 1996.

CORE KNOWLEDGE CURRICULUM

BCP piloted the Core Knowledge Language Arts curriculum in 2014 in order to build student background knowledge and vocabulary. The curriculum includes authentic fiction and nonfiction texts that teachers read aloud. These texts are grouped in knowledge domains that create interactive opportunities to question, discuss and share ideas centered on text. This curriculum ensures students are well prepared when they transition from learning to read to reading to learn.

 

COACHING

BCP Coaches work one-on-one in the classroom to mentor teachers and model effective instruction. Once a week the BCP coaches meet to discuss student progress, teacher challenges, and overall school improvement.

 

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCES

BCP provides two professional development conferences and several day-long seminars for over 200 teachers each year. Principals determine their staff training needs and BCP customizes training to meet those needs. BCP also provides training that addresses areas identified by BCP coaches and leadership staff.View a list of past PD Conferences.

 

SUMMER TRAINING INSTITUTE

Each summer BCP holds a one to two week Summer Training Institute for new and returning teachers. BCP provides training in both behavior management and academic instruction.

 

NWEA MAP TESTING

Northwest Evaluation Association’s Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments are state-aligned computerized adaptive tests that accurately reflect the instructional level of each student and measure growth over time. BCP began using MAP to measure student growth at each BCP schools in 2007. For more information visitNorthwest Evaluation Association at:http://www.nwea.org/.

STRIVE FOR UNDER FIVE: A new attendance initiative called, Strive for Under Five, is being rolled out at Hampstead Hill Academy, Wolfe Street Academy, City Springs Elementary / Middle, Patterson Park Public Charter School, and Commodore John Rodgers Elementary/Middle School. The goal of the program is to encourage students to miss less than five days during the school year and improve attendance in Southeast Baltimore schools. Each month, students will receive a certificate if they achieve perfect attendance. With this certificate, they will earn incentives from local businesses. Students can redeem their incentives by bringing their certificate to the designated businesses or locations, which will be listed on the back of their certificate. The incentives will include items such as a free kid’s meal or beverage, free books, a 20% off coupon, buy one get one free offers, etc. Each student will receive a magnet that provides reminders and strategies for getting to school every day on-time, and a chart each month that will help them track their attendance. ...
