"The Kids Benefit from It, so It's Worth It": Time for Teaching and Learning at SMASH. Teachers' Time: Collaborating for Learning, Teaching, and Leading
Burns, Dion; Bae, Soung; Snyder, Jon D.
Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education
Part of the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE) research series titled "Teachers' Time: Collaborating for Learning, Teaching, and Leading," this case study looks at the Santa Monica Alternative School House (SMASH), a K-8 public school in the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD). It is a school of choice, with admission by lottery. SMASH has organized time in a way that differs from the traditional school model. Time at SMASH is crafted around an approach to learning that focuses on growing strong relationships between teachers and students as well as among the teaching staff themselves. This strategy helps create a school culture that supports collabora­tion. Teachers have opportunities to collaborate frequently, to grow relationships, to learn with and from each other, and to plan learning opportunities for students. This case study looks at how time is organized, the opportunities time creates for teacher and student learning, and the enabling conditions that support this kind of model.
