Professional Learning Follow-Up

Some good information shared last week concerning

I would think it would lead you to some great conversations within your departments and PLC's!


Some additional guiding questions below to discuss this week......


Do you have a test/assessment that needs to be looked at and maybe revised?


Are you using the same assessment that you have used because it’s easy?


What do you you need to re-work to make it better for students?


Are you writing quality assessment questions?


Are your current assessments utilizing all/appropriate DOK levels?


Is your PLC effectively producing, revising, and implementing quality common assessments for your students?



Some links below for follow up this week......
