AMERICAN HEART DAY- WEAR RED TOMORROW!!!!
Achievement Measure Selection
Wednesday, September 30th
Davis and Clark, please stop through at anytime during the day. If I left you off let me know!
Tip 1: Effective planning of Activity and Materials will add grit to the questioning, thinking, and problem solving portion when you deliver lessons. You have to be thoughtful and intentional in your planning and delivery for these areas.
Tip 2: Exploration and Curiosity show up in several places- Motivating Students, Activities and Materials, Questioning (Inquiry = Curiosity), and Thinking (creative thinking: design, imaging, suppose= exploration, curiosity, and inquiry)
Below are several links to helpful documents I've added to the Evaluation folder on Google Docs. There are also other great breakdowns of each indicator in the folder as well! As I get more resources, I will share them with you.
The instructional rounds are NEXT WEEK, October 8th! Again, no worries :). Be yourselves. Things can only get better after the feedback we get. Please remember to have your updated, detailed lesson plans outside your door. I'm not worried at all!
End of the Year Trip
Tennessee Succeeds (FYI)
Per Dr. Candice McQueen, Tennessee Commissioner of Education
At the Superintendent Study Council Conference, we kicked off the next chapter for Tennessee education with a renewed vision:
Districts and schools in Tennessee will exemplify excellence and equity such that all students are equipped with the knowledge and skills to successfully embark upon their chosen path in life.
In pursuit of this vision, we established three ambitious goals and five key priorities, which are outlined in our strategic plan, Tennessee Succeeds. We look forward to working closely with each of you in fulfilling our commitment to all Tennessee students.
According to what I read, there will be a push coming our way to make sure we are creating and setting the foundation for students to be ready for high school. Not sure of the specifics yet. I do know that we will eventually have a state standardized test. I will keep you informed as I receive information. For those of you interested in viewing the document, click below. Keep up the hard work!
