My Destination Postcard:
<upload image here>

From our brainstorm list of possible topics (or others that have surfaced in your thinking):
  • Which interest you? reaching out and pulling in; documentation and reflection

  • Which peak your personal/professional curiosity the most? reaching out and pulling in

  • What questions surface within the topic(s) and with specific regard to your practice? To your own learning? To student learning?

I am specifically interested in reaching out as a way of fostering (for each child) a sense of immediate importance regarding the content of the moment/year.

Planning Stage

Influenced by:


Reflection
Reflection




Autonomy:

The element of my practice I'd like to tinker with is....developing and immediate importance of the content

documentation/portfolio per student for reflection purposes (fairly quick reflection - check lists?)

Purpose:

  • Goal - The goal of my effort is to...foster a desire to learn the material, skills, etc...




  • help students understand the value of reflection


  • Question - The fundamental question I will be exploring is... will this foster tenacity of effort?


  • (draft a focus question and subquestions; be prepared to revise these throughout the challenge)

Growth:

What artifacts of learning might I collect as evidence of growth...?

(suggestions)
  • anecdotal records
  • student reflections
  • teacher reflections
  • student work samples
  • iterations
  • observations
  • peer/colleague feedback
  • assessment data
    • rubrics
    • other formative pieces...
  • surveys
  • counts
  • more...
