Celebrating your work!
This year your schools have really stepped up to use and spread the resources provided by our Education Team! Kudos to all of the wonderful evidence we have seen through our interactions with your teacher leaders and through stepped up travel schedules. This SMORE is intended to share how you are all working to articulate and display evidence of our high quality educational program.

Process Board Checklist
A well constructed Process Board tells the story of student learning from beginning to end. From the teachers' perspective, it can be a "Brag" board so they can brag about all the tasks and lessons they created to support rigorous student learning.
Students can be involved in the creation of these boards. Building one can be part of their reflection following a project. ASK: "What did you learn and how did you learn it?"
