Team Meeting Prep 10/8-9

To prepare for our October 9th team meetings, please view and thoughtfully consider the Rick Wormeli video below at some point before then regarding mastery and ponder the following:

Food for Thought
  • What does mastery mean to you?
  • What will you tolerate as evidence?
  • What are grades about for you? for your students?
  • Are you evidence bound or bartering?
  • Are grades in your classroom about compensation/validation/affirmation or communication? What is the difference?
Rick Wormeli: Defining Mastery

Technology FYI

Please take note of this information related to when/how student accounts are created:

  • Once a student is entered into Skyward, within three hours their computer and wifi account is created.
  • Blackboard accounts are created two to three times a week. It is not an automatic process at this time.
  • For computer and wifi account issues, you are always able to call the AME helpdesk to get passwords reset.
  • Acheive3000, just like with online textbooks, students are uploaded at the start of the year but after that the teaches will need to add their own students.
