SLO Goal Help

Here are a couple of helpful tips about your goal that is due on the Sep. 13th. Remember, I emailed you a short video where Lara walks you through inputing your goal as well as the specific format that it needs to be written in. These tips are more to make sure you are on track during the development stage of your goal.

Small but Powerful Difference in Action

It is easy to create a list of things that we know we should do, or could do as we plan for the year. This question can be used as a reflection to ensure implementation plans are steps towards ensuring their LEARNING. Ask yourself is this a to do or a to learn.

Making it all Match

If you tell me your foundation and your action steps-I should get a good idea as to the focus and outcome of your TPG/SLO. Once these two components "add-up", it is easier to form a clear picture of the goal.

Spotlight on Professional Learning

Genius Hour

Above all else we should strive to empower self directed, forever learners. One of the ways you can do this is allow your students to learn about topics they are passionate about. I am such a believer in Genius Hour in the classroom.
