Cultivating Critical Thinking and Creativity in Responsive Learning Environments

At our staff meeting on May 10th, we will continue our conversation about the conditions for thinking classrooms. Check out the word cloud above that I made with the ideas we generated at our last staff meeting.

Teaching staff, I'm going to email you a copy of the stop/start/continue you did around creating thinking classrooms. You will have an opportunity to reflect on this at the staff meeting.

Keith did not have a chance to share at our last staff meeting, but he did post an interesting article on Yammer about productive struggle in Math. I have included a graphic from it below. Good suggestions for any learning!

As we head into this busy time, please keep us informed at the office of outings, fields trips, guests, sporting events, etc.

Have a good week,
