The Office of Teaching and Learning supports the mission, vision and values of our learning-focused school, where all stakeholders have ownership as a connected “Community of Practice”.
At first glance we hope that visitors to ASD notice that there is evidence of student learning everywhere throughout the school, from the bulletin boards in the hallways, to the displays of student work, to the performances in the Fine Arts facility, to the demonstration of skills on the athletic fields and to the student-led learning service projects. Everywhere you will hear students talking about their learning and demonstrating their knowledge and skills. We strive for well-rounded, balanced learners.
We strive to enable our students to transfer their “school learning” into their lives beyond school, ensuring that they become successful and engaged life-long learners.
The Office of Teaching and Learning works to ensure the curriculum is focused on providing students with a vertically aligned quality education, where PreK – 12 standards are anchored in the best of American education. We are focused on meeting each child at their level, providing them with opportunities to grow.
The Office of Teaching and Learning also provides a vigorous professional learning program to support teachers in their professional growth. Identifying teacher strengths and developing talents, ensures school-wide goals for excellence will be met across all divisions. We believe the purpose of professional learning is to impact student achievement.
Our ultimate charge, as stated in our mission statement, is to guide students to be positive, active global citizens. We hope that this simple but complex statement will extend into our whole community. We hope you find the evidence of our commitment to learning everywhere you look and in every conversation you have at the American School of Doha.
We are one “Community of Practice”, learning together.
