I really liked the chart they were using to discuss the assessments. Does anyone have a good one their school likes?

valuable video to show PLC at work in developing common assessments, reviewing and planning based on the outcome, and designing new ways to reteach a concept. Also the example of how to share with students the collegian planning that resulted in the reteaching lesson makes it clear to students that their teachers are committed and relentless in their learning. Thank you for this video!! plan to use it in PD for staff.

I took many ideas away from this video. Teachers NEED to plan together to get the most out of their teaching. Building CFA's together doesn't have to be overbearing as so many of us think if we put our ideas together and base it off of what we see is a need in our classroom. Empowering!

The video offered a practical academic view upon both the "what" and the "how." Rarely, are the instructional and learning strategies merged. I am excited to observe that the reformation for education has not isolated the two strategies. Recognizing what we do - while instructing and recognizing how cognitively our students engage, has become primary.
