On November 14th, the instructional coaches organized 6 blocks of time for teachers to interact with Joe Ginotti regarding embedded formative assessment strategies. The response was overwhelmingly positive and teachers were excited to walk away with practical and easily integrated strategies. Forty-two teachers were able to get some small group time with Joe and he was ready, willing and able to answer all individual questions about how they could enhance what they already do. We are looking to invite Joe back for a repeat performance to give more staff time to sit with the expert – this will probably occur in February.
I’ll take these 50 degree days in December anytime 🙂
