3 Signs Your Leadership Roles Are Actually Classroom Jobs
A great, SHORT, article regarding Leadership Roles in your classroom:
- Review ELA Evaluate Scores. Bring the completed blue sheet.
- Set up and start thinking about how you will hit the low % questions in an RTI format before November.
- Evaluate curriculum skill review. Use the highly missed question as a hook to engage students into a new lesson. Try to use the Evaluate resource often as it is aligned to our Missouri Learning Standards.
One Important Question That Leads to Student Empowerment in Schools
If you want to empower students, this is a really simple question to ask when taking on anything:
Could the students be doing this?
The best assemblies I have ever seen were led by students.
The best introductions I have ever received as a speaker was written and presented by students.
The best artwork I have seen in schools was done by students.
I am biased toward work that is done by students, but I would rather see the imperfect work of a student than the perfect work of a staff member. Not only does this lead to more pride and ownership of the school but it also leads to real life opportunities now that can lead to opportunities in the future.
Less work for adults and more meaningful learning for students.
What are you doing for students that they can be doing for themselves?
It is such a simple idea but a powerful one. We talk about preparing our students for the opportunities in the future, but there is no time like the present to create this within our schools.
Test of the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) RESCHEDULED for October 3, 2018
Since learning time will likely be disrupted, school safety partners, including the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Safe and Healthy Students and its REMS TA Center, and the Youth Preparedness group within FEMA's Individual and Community Preparedness Division, highly encourage state and local agencies to use the time to provide a teachable moment about emergency preparedness.
