Spotlight on Professional Learning

If we are going to make a difference we can't have the sink or swim mentality when it comes to learning. We do a great job at Davis, but its always nice to have this reassurance that we are getting it right. This is my favorite part of the article, but the link is at the bottom if you would like to read the entire article.

"One of their frequently expressed concerns is that giving some students additional chances to learn is ‘not fair’ to the students who passed the first time,” he says. “If the mission of the school is to identify students who learn fast and who learn the first time we teach it, this approach makes sense. But if the mission of the school is to ensure all students learn, it does not.”


Teachers-I know you have come across great articles and different professional learning things. If it is amazing, send it to me so I can share it with the teachers. Thank you
