PD Delayed Opening October 6, 2014

As a HS community, we are thankful to have scheduled time during the school year to reflect on where we are and where we are going.  Today is especially exciting as we are engaging in a BIG READ – the entire staff will be reading, discussing, analyzing Make It Stick.  This book will supplement our work this year regarding assessments.  Admittedly this is a huge undertaking and we understand that we will need to be a bit methodical in how we break this down.  This year, our immediate focus is on formative assessment as the current research is rather convincing about the ability of these types of assessments positively influencing learning!

Please feel free to join us in this BIG READ.  Dylan Wiliam has also published Embedded Formative Assessment – another excellent book.  Mr. Ginotti is returning to us on November 14th to spend some time with small groups of teachers in the actual creation of good formative assessments.

Stay tuned !!
