SLO Goal Help
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
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.
Happy Birthday to you!!!
