Each Day, Each Child, SUCCESS!
DISD Core Beliefs
Learning Targets, LO's, DOL's, oh my!
I know this is a sore subject with many , but as we continue in our planning and move to our vertical planning we will be discussing our Learning Targets, or as DISD terms them- LO's and DOL's. At my previous campus, my teachers were required to post their TEK using cards provided by the district. My teachers were required to post a closing task for the students based on how they unpacked the TEK. There are many districts are implementing something similar.
While I know it is "one more thing", this is important for our students to connect their new learning using their schema. As adult learners we want to know what we are learning when we go to a training, and our kids do too.
We do a good job of consistently posting LO's and DOL's. If we hit the learning target everyday at the depth of the TEK our kids will be successful :). We do not have to plan anything flashy or showy, simple consistency with hitting the targeted TEK. As a leadership team we want you to know that we are committed to supporting your planning LO's and DOL's, not as an isolated stand alone training, but embedded in all the PD we provide this year.
