Notes from Damita

Dear Robinson,

Looking forward to another great week in #JROBNation. As you know we are in full motion toward student proficiency goals with 8 weeks before Spring Break and 10 weeks before SBAC administration. As we push through, continue to ensure each learning opportunity is working to meet the goals that hold students to high expectations.

In preparation for this week's staff collaboration opportunity on 2/27/2019- DOK and Assessment:

1. Please bring your plan book for the week of Feb 19 - 22, and the week of Feb 25- March 1

2. Please bring the assessments/quizzes/exit tickets that you administered to students during the week of February 19-22.

2/20 - Recap from Dr. Deena Brown with supporting African American males

1. Are we providing positive images of black males, through lesson design and implementation - Culture relevance is key? We must make their history important and celebrated.

2. Don't buy into the perceived stereotypes or narrative that "all" black males are one way. To address this mindset change we must get to know our student and know what drives them.

3. Don't carry biases from another teacher, start new and start fresh for each child

As we know..It's about RELATIONSHIPS, RELATIONSHIPS...Therefore, we must speak encouraging words to them as if they’re our own children because of the power we have in their lives.

STOIC: PLAYGROUND Structures and consistency are KEY! It takes us all for a Safe and Civil School!

Having an engaging playground is essential to having a safe play space for all students. Take some time to review the rules of popular playground games so that students are less likely to argue about rules. Why not add these games to your supplemental P.E. time? This will likely encourage less active students to give these games a try!

Here are a few resources for your use:
