Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to visit our blog. We would like to invite you to contribute your ideas related to professional development in this forum. We hope to offer all teachers at BHS the opportunity to have input in the PD you are experiencing this year, and to reflect on ideas and practices of our outstanding faculty.

Data needs, etc.

Hi everyone!  Thanks for a productive meeting today.  I wanted to share the questions from our microlabs so that people could post their thoughts to this blog (and perhaps revise their responses after reading the chapter).

1.  Thinking ahead to June, what would a culture of effective  assessment and reflection look like in your department or SLC?  How might classroom instruction be different?

2.  What data would you see your program accessing and/or using at this time (January - March - June)

3.  What actions will be required of your leadership to bring about these changes?  Identify the actions or skills that you will need to develop.

Also, please note that if you want to attend Glenn's workshop on the 13th, there are only five spaces left as of today.  See announcement on the right for more details.

One more thing:  did you know that a small group of us are embarking on an instructional coaching pilot at BHS?  Do you want to be involved, or would you like a coach?  See the article Glenn shared with us, linked at the bottom of this page - "Personal Best," written by Atul Gawande and published in the 10/11 issue of the New Yorker.
