SmarterBalanced- This assessment will be given to all 3rd and 4th graders in March 2015 in the areas of Reading and Math. As a staff we will dive into learning about the assessment. This is an online assessment and is much different than the types of questions students are used to answering.
Technology/Staff meeting-March 6
The second part of the meeting will be focused on learning more about SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redefinition) as it relates to Technology integration. Please bring your macbook and ipad to the meeting as well as one lesson you have given recently that included technology, OR could include technology.
Educator Effectiveness- Documentation Log- Summative
The Documentation Log is part of the Educator Effectiveness process and is only completed by teachers that are in their summative year of the process. If this is your summative year, you might consider joining this workshop for more information about Documentation Logs. At the same time, if it is not your summative year, this workshop would also be valuable to you so that you can prepare for your summative year (at this time, the Documentation Log tool is not available for teachers in Year 1 or Year 2 of the process…but this workshop will help you to better understand what you should be documenting).
If you plan to attend, you should sign up at www.mylearningplan.com under the district catalog. This direct link might also help: http://www.mylearningplan.com/LearningPlan/ActivityProfile.asp?I=1507107. There are also workshops on Thursday at Bay Port at 2:30 pm in the Forum Room and Lineville at 3:45 pm in the library.
As always, you can also access information by going to the “Educator Effectiveness” Schoology course (type in this course number if you haven’t joined the Educator Effectiveness Schoology course yet…KPWXW-PHKCS). Go into the folder called “1.1 Educator Practices Modules”, then the folder called “Documentation Log”.
