Growth Plans - Mid Year Reflection

Now is a great time to take a look at your Growth Plan and reflect on the two site goals and your individual goal that you set at the beginning of the school year. At the end of the year you should be able to answer the following questions:

1. How did I implement Critical Thinking and Problem Solving in my classroom and did these strategies improve learning outcomes?

2. Did the work of my PLC improve my teaching and improve learning outcomes?

3. Did I meet my individual goal that I identified on my growth plan?

Hattie's 8 Mindframes for Teachers is a good refresher for the start of a new semester. Please watch the short video below:

Are you teaching the same course this semester as you have in the past? Did you create Canvas content for your past course as well? Then you might want to consider “Importing Content” from a past course into your present course.

Below are links to a video and help sheet showing each step on how to “Import Content”. If you would like to attempt “importing content” into your course, but would like some assistance please call or email me. (Ext. 39643, or smmcdonald@spsmail.org)
