Personalized Learning @ OES
The Journey, The Growth, The Success
Building Airplanes in The Air
This semester we began by creating professional goals surrounding instructional practices on which you all would like to focus your work. Below you will find the focus area for each grade level. As we continue on this journey together, cheering one another on and celebrating each success, remember that we are on this flight together! I will be sharing resources that may be helpful for your work, and if you find a resource that you think may be helpful for a grade level, pass it on! Many grade levels have a similar focus for their goal! Thanks for being amazing people to work with, and smiling through the midst of this work!
Kindergarten- Voice and Choice, PBL, Accountability
First Grade- Self Assessment, Accountability
2nd Grade- Use data effectively to drive instruction and switch classes, PBL
3rd-5th Grades- Voice and Choice
According to the Needs Assessment that you all completed at the beginning of the year, many of you said that you like to learn through videos. I have inserted a few videos below that might offer a little information, or spark some ideas for ways in which you all can work to reach these goals! While these examples are not perfect and may not be exactly what we want to see at OES, they are a starting point for examples of strategies used that we can build upon!
As we work to move towards our vision with the focus on our goals this month, we will also examine DOK and look at increasing the rigor in the learning opportunities that we are offering students. I look forward to working with you all next week during our half day planning sessions! Please let me know if there are specific resources I can provide or questions that you need answered! Looking forward to seeing your work and the OES students "take flight!" :)
