Our last PL session continued to focus on Assessment for Learning. There has been a real effort to make connections from previous PL days to future PL days. We were focusing part of the day on concept-based learning units.
Since it is February, we have decided to view relationships with our conceptual lens in our classroom. We are applying that lens to fractions, narrative writing, the Progressive Era, and characters we encounter while reading to self.
Another relationship we will be examining is our mind-set. I have linked a great post from Daniel Pink that has an outstanding organizer for divergent mind-sets. http://www.danpink.com/archives/2010/11/the-3-rules-of-mindsets .
