21st Century Learning--Jennifer Manzini
PLC and Coaching Conversations
We each decided to conduct the lesson on separate days so I had the opportunity to come into each of the classrooms and conduct a walk through. I took notes as I watched the lessons and then had a debriefing conversation where I used the coaching conversations prompts resource. The lessons were all very effective but each different because of the different teaching styles. Each conversation was different because of the different things that were observed.
Having the opportunity to conduct walk-throughs and have coaching conversations was extremely beneficial for everyone involved. My colleagues and myself are now able to dive into each lesson with more intent and focus on 21st century learning.
Boston Massacre Lesson
The students then had to decide individually, based on the evidence from the text, whether or not the Boston Massacre was an accident or whether it was murder. The students had to write a response with supporting facts from the sources that were provided. The students were given a writing rubric that was used to help guide the students as well as for grading the responses.
