Adult Learning Curriculum
In Lindsay, the Adult Learning Curriculum (ALC) identifies the skills and knowledge needed for the Performance Based System. One of the tools used to define the ALC is the Instructional Look Fors framework. It is a compilation of 26 learner actions grouped into 6 domains that should be seen in a Performance Based System learning environment.
- This framework was created through a grant Lindsay Unified received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to work with Summit Public Schools and Transcend Education to create clarity around the key components of personalized learning. All of this development work was analyzed by the Center for Public Research and Leadership (CPRL) from Columbia University to ensure it is supported by current data and research around what is best for learners. The tools were designed with and vetted by Lindsay Unified staff to ensure alignment within our system.
- Through the TSL grant, extensive work has been done to leverage the Adult Learning Curriculum and the Instructional Look Fors as part of the district’s Human Capital Management System (HCMS). This work includes continued research science, the design and implementation of resources for the Instructional Look Fors to support learning facilitators and leaders, as well as an ongoing video series of instructional models of the Look Fors in both in-persona and remote instruction.
