Mannahouse teachers organize their classrooms so that all students can learn. They maximize instructional time and foster respectful interactions with and among students, ensuring that students find the classroom a safe place to take intellectual risks. Mannahouse students make an important contribution to the effective functioning of the class by assisting with classroom procedures, ensuring effective use of physical space, and supporting the learning of classmates. Mannahouse students and teachers work in ways that demonstrate our belief that hard work will result in higher levels of learning. Mannahouse student behavior is consistently appropriate, and the teachers’ handling of infractions is subtle, preventive, and respectful of students’ dignity.
MCA teachers have high ethical standards and a deep sense of professionalism, focused on improving their own teaching and supporting the ongoing learning of colleagues. Their record-keeping systems are efficient and effective, and they communicate with families clearly, frequently, and with cultural sensitivity. Teachers plan and prepare for lessons using their extensive knowledge of the content area, the relationships between the subject and other disciplines, and their students’ prior understanding of the subject. They have clear instructional outcomes that represent important learning in the subject, and are aligned to the curriculum. The instructional design includes learning activities that are well sequenced and require students to think, problem solve, inquire, and defend opinions. Teachers design formative assessments to monitor learning, and they provide the information needed to differentiate instruction.
Mannahouse teachers cultivate healthy spiritual lives by setting time aside each day to receive and respond appropriately to the Holy Spirt. Mannahouse teachers exhibit an awareness and sensitivity to a diversity of beliefs, values, and backgrounds; thus creating a school culture of respect and inclusion without compromising biblical truth. We strive to live like Jesus and share His love with all people. Mannahouse teachers aim to integrate God’s word into all curricular areas, providing a Biblical perspective that is clear and easy to understand. Mannahouse teachers take an active role in partnering with families in the spiritual development of their children.
In the classrooms of Mannahouse teachers, all students are highly engaged in learning. Mannahouse students participate in high-level discussions and active involvement in learning. Mannahouse teacher explanations are clear and invite student intellectual engagement. The teachers’ feedback is specific to learning goals and rubrics and offers concrete suggestions for improvement. As a result, Mannahouse students understand their progress in learning the content, they can explain the course learning goals, and what they need to do in order to improve. Mannahouse teachers recognize their responsibility for student learning and make adjustments, as needed, to ensure student success.
