Mayan Weekly

Week of July 28th


Our focus for the first few weeks will be on DLT's. Please remember our philosophy is to use the walkthrough process to support you and students. While DLT's weren't in all classrooms all of you had relevant and creative lessons going on. It was fantastic seeing the many great activities over the first three days of school. We saw a lot of structured student interactions built around learning procedures but most importantly they allowed you to start building relationships with kids and amongst themselves. Hopefully you can see the importance in DLT's and these opening of school ice-breakers and procedural lessons are a perfect time to introduce simple yet effective DLT's to students.

Click on the link below to view a 2 minute video of the SAMR model. Remember your training with Mr. Torres' on Google Drive and Google Doc's last week? This video explains SAMR through the use of those exact tools. It is also a great sample of what students could potentially do with videos.
