BHS Updates

A Community Committed to Learning

October 17 - October 21

Team,

Thanks for your professionalism and good communication during Parent/Teacher Conferences. We had lots of positive feedback concerning the relationships you all build with students. Good parental communication does not stop with conferences, but is vital for us to keep the lines open throughout the year.


The PSAT will be administered this Wednesday from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the South gym. The counseling office will have the list of students taking the exam to you early next week.


Antonetti''s Cube


Dr. Michelle Brenner posted an Instruction Technology Digest a while back that contained information about an Innovation Summit put on by the Greater Ozarks Cooperating School District (GOCSD) taking place May 31 - June 1. A keynote speaker for the event is John Antonetti, who some of you all may remember from several PD days put on by the district. Mr. Antonetti was all about 1) Engagement 2) Brain-based learning and 3) Rigor (plus he was funny along the way). Below is a great tool he shared that I used in the classroom when preparing lessons. It is called "Antonetti's Cube." It involves the top five of Marzano's brain-based instructional strategies, four higher order thinking traits from Bloom's work, and eight engaging qualities of work that are evident in lesson design. Look over the cube and see how your lessons plug in to his approach. Making sure your lessons encompass a variety of these strategies can help engage more kids in your classroom.


Thanks,

Jack
