Today for PLC we were able to use this time to help plan instruction for our classrooms. As you know we have been studying the book "Making Thinking Visible" so we had a chance to plan some new thinking routines to use. I planned alongside Maggie Willett and we were able to complete CLO's (Content Language Objectives) for four math units. The entire staff reviewed the writing of these and then shared them through a staff website we have. We were able to look over each others and use them to help us write and adapt the ones we use each day in our classroom. If you'd like to see the ones that I use, they are posted on the bulletin board right by the entrance of the class under the "What are we learning today?" section.
You will find information about what the teachers at Bill Roberts are learning about and exploring during our Early Release each Friday from 1pm-3:30pm.
