Assessment Planning Days
Teams you may wear jeans/sweats for your day. Please bring any data you have gathered for your learners for this year to get us started digging into data! We will have an agenda to follow and you will have time to plan specific learning groups for differentiating instruction. Also, you will have time to focus on goal setting for learners as well as we will set our SLO (Student Learning Objective) goals together.
TLC Assignment - Twitter
Remember that you have your virtual assignment from last week's blog Curriculum Connection about Twitter. This was so we could implement virtual learning/sharing as well as face to face.
