PBTL for next semester.... Sessions are 1/26 and 3/15... please let me know if you are interested!

here is what your colleagues are saying about Performance Based Teaching and Learning..


The Performance Based Teaching and Learning training has taught me the importance of providing my students the opportunity to apply what they know. In doing so, they should be given learning targets so they know why they are doing the task and specific criteria so that they know what is expected of them.


The PBTL training was awesome! The presenter was very clear and precise in her explanations and we had a chance to collaborate with teachers from other schools to design a product that we could use in our classroom for assessment. We learned that performance based assessments integrate the student’s knowledge, skills and understandings in a specific measurable activity which promotes student self-assessment and engagement while meeting specific criteria.

Morning Meeting!

Check out this morning meeting that Crystal Catoe shared with me!!!!!!! This is a great time to incorporate the 7 Mindsets as well as touch on different academic standards. If you would like more information or help incorporating morning meeting (no matter what time of the day) please let Andrea or Chelsea know.

Have you ever thought about what it's like to be in your class?
