BYOD (Bring your own device!)


Consider the following ways to get active as a PL Champ:
  1. Introduce yourself as the PL Champ to your staff - Here are some ideas for you!
  2. Have a quick PL Site Scavenger Hunt with your staff to find out what is there
  3. Survey people to find out what they are interested in learning about
  4. Have a What's Happening with PL share out in small groups at a staff meeting


Learning Walks strategies to share w/your PL Team...

  1. Have everyone in the group share a purpose for their participation. Gives a focus!
  2. Review the Walkthrough Tool at a staff meeting prior to the date.
  3. Make a list of 2-3 questions to focus the debriefs. (Never skip the debrief! This is the #secretsauce)


A blog post by Catlin Tucker - Ask, Yourself, Why Am I Grading This? Consider grading through the lens of when to give grades, when to give feedback, both or neither. Short on time? Skip the article and checkout the graphic on the post!
