Process - How work gets done, manage & evaluated.
  • I really liked to analyze data but more important to incorporate that on this week lesson plan and how to work on small groups.
  • Kept the meeting focus
  • Breaking into small groups
  • Being able to collaborate with colleagues on strategies for next steps is a good tool
  • We followed the agenda

Relationships - How people relate to each other and their work.

  • Everyone did well not only offering advice on ways to re-teach but asked good questions to push thinking in regards to results.
  • Getting together to look @ data and asking how it was taught can help me to reteach a different way.
  • Great to hear different ideas from teachers about how they are making adjustments to lessons

Results - Accomplish the goal

  • Really positive environment even when both contents are in the same room.
  • Ideas from the team - feeling excited to modify my plan to add their ideas
  • I think starting the meeting off with an article was powerful and helped get the meeting focused


Process - How work gets done, manage & evaluated.
