IB Update

I will continue to work with principals to fill out the Application for Authorization this week. We are in our second week of full day meetings and they are going very well.

We are using the rest of this year to align the rest of our subjects with our planners, to update our curriculum maps so that we can get a clear idea of which standards are taught each quarter. This will make standards based grading much more manageable. I am attaching the sample of my visual agenda, this is my "unit planner" for our meetings for the rest of this year. Those that have had their meetings with me have seen this, those that haven't met yet will be seeing it soon. You will have access to the template in your grade level file. This visual agenda is a great way to help your students understand how our curriculum is transdisciplinary.
