Bearcat Brief

February 15, 2019

Notes from Niki

I'm starting to pen this on Monday afternoon, and I am really impressed by the work that we did today with our PD time. I heard very rich conversations about teaching and learning. The identification of our priority standards is an important step in the PLC process.


The more PD sessions I attend about teaching and learning the more strongly I believe that students having a road map for what they will be learning and how it connects to content in that discipline and across disciplines is essential. Having that road map in our curricular GPS has to be the first step.


Thank you for your hard work in this area- we have a really good start in the process.
