The Challenger Dispatch
Feb. 15-19, 2016 Blue Week
Instructional Rounds Work - Feedback
1. Self Regulation in students. Meaning kids didn't know if they were doing well or not unless the teacher said so.
2. The need for more higher order open ended questioning by teachers.
3. The problem with praise versus encouragement. ( Growth Mindset work)
4. The need for more student to student feedback strategies and more teacher/student strategies.
This week in collaboration, you and your team will be exploring the self regulation piece with a survey, and learning more about the problem with praise through some online viewing.
This work will continue to help us refine and move our student learning deeper. Thank you for being a part of this important work.
Keeping adding evidence pleas
Add the last equity meeting to your evidence. I will send a link for questioning/feedback for you to add as well.
