Key Points from "The Big Rocks"
• *The principals' number one priority is zeroing in
on the highest priority activities for bringing all
students to high levels of achievement.
• "If you don't put the two or three top priorities
into your calendar first, all the other stuff will
clutter your days."
• Covey, "The key is not to prioritize what's on your
schedule, but to schedule your priorities." (p.
161)
The challenge is figuring out
which two or three are the
highest priority in your school,
setting measurable goals, and
pursuing them with laserlike
determination.
WHAT ARE YOUR BIG ROCKS?
Big Rocks Handout
Take some time to reflect on your “Big
Rocks” for the upcoming school year.
Planning System Steps:
• Decide on a planning system
• Daily "to-do" lists are not enough, they don't
address the big rocks!
• Daily Planning Example...
– suggested from the article...
Advice from the author• Get into classrooms!
• Teachers crave feedback.
• What works best?
– short, unannounced observations of 5 -15 minutes
– face-to-face feedback with teacher
– goal of five classrooms per day
Advice from the author• Be out front when students arrive, be
available during lunch duties (mix your visits
up), go outside during recess/break times as
well as during dismissal times.
• Visibility and accessibility really matter in this
job!
Tip!
• Spend little time in your office for those
frequent droppers that invariably start with
the words, "Got a minute?"
-A sitting principal is a sitting duck!
“Management is doing things
right; leadership is doing the
right things.”
- Peter Drucker (1909 - 2005)
The Effective Principal Highlights:
• Be concerned with instruction above all!
• Today's best principals "know what good and
effective instruction looks like so they can
provide feedback to guide teachers."
• Best Practice by Zemelman, Daniels, and Hyde
can help principals recognize effective
instruction.
Great Book!

Summary Ball
• A Summary Ball is merely a beachball or other harmless
ball that can be tossed about the classroom with relative
safety. After the teacher has presented a sufficient amount
of information, or after students have read a chapter in
their text, this activity can be used as a review. Students
stand around the classroom and the teacher tosses the ball
to the first student, who must catch the ball and in 5
seconds state any idea, fact or concept from the lessons.
He/she then tosses the ball to another student who has not
yet spoken. The second student must add something that
has not been mentioned. If a student can't add anything
from the lesson, he/she still tosses the ball, but must sit
down. Play continues until only one student is left
standing.
