Then, 2nd Grade shared out some of their writing samples for their prompt this week related to College Awareness. College Awareness will be a concept that will be a feature throughout the year. We want kids to connect with knowledge that everyone will go to college. By the way, the 2nd Grade comments and writing samples were sweet, innocent, funny, and insightful. Who knew you have to go to college in order to get a driver’s license?
The rest of the PLC was devoted to creating district-required Student Growth Objectives for our individual classes and content areas. The goals are connected to individual student growth related to a specific body of evidence, i.e. writing samples, standardized test scores, classroom teacher made assessments, etc. The conversations between colleagues were deep, and were focused on the best way to measure the student growth through thorough and direct instruction. The objectives were written and submitted to Administrative staff at the end of the PLC.
