Best Practice Implementation / K-12 Model District


Norman Public Schools, Norman, OK
GId identified by district leaders as the pedagogical framework to back their 1:1 laptop adoption. Complete district roll out using the GID institute professional development model with learning teams at every school K-12.

The Guided Inquiry Design® Process is significantly impacting teaching and learning in Norman Public Schools.  As we make Guided Inquiry a consistent part of our learning landscape, it is exciting to see educators working collaboratively with a sense of purpose that is focused on deep, student-centered learning.  Teachers and librarians are reporting high levels of student engagement as well as improved learner outcomes from ALL learners. Leslie’s training has provided the knowledge and support necessary to make this shift to an instructional model that fosters learner success and student ownership of learning.

“Our district’s implementation of Guided Inquiry Design® has been one of the most far-reaching innovative accomplishments that I’ve seen in my 33 year career as an educator.  Leslie’s training and ongoing support of our efforts have been vital to the success of this instructional model.”
