THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK

Dear Unami,


One of our professional building goals this year is to continue refining our grading practices. I promised that you would have time to work within your departments to develop consistent Learning to Proficiency practices and processes. Departments should meet today from 2:40 to 4:00PM. This department time is taking the place of team time and a regularly scheduled faculty meeting. I shared with each department coordinator guidelines for this work. Special area teachers can work independently or as a collective group.

*Members of Courage to Teach book study group will also meeting during this time. Introduction, Chapters 1 & 2

With the beginning of a new marking period, here are some quick videos from the Teaching Channel to refresh your teaching practice. I loved "Grading the Process" and "Using Guided Relaxation in the Classroom".


Have a great week!

Unami United,
Christina

Technology Reminder

If you are not already doing so, I am asking that moving forward, you assign your students to a specific computer, when using desktops/laptops in our labs or classrooms. I am also asking that your reinforce with students that they are responsible for the care of the computer when in use, and that you do a quick check after usage, either in the labs or classrooms.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
