As I form the foundation of the work for the new school year, what crystallized for me during the 3 day Bea McGarvey workshop on What Works in Schools, continues to be what I posted about last November:
A school is people learning. (click on the sentence to go to the original post – still holds true).
I’m excited about the District taking the Marzano research as the foundation of working, as it will give us common language to improve. As my thinking firms up even more, the work going on at Fablevision and Generation Yes continue to peak my interest. I do not yet see a vision for how they play in, but I think that will become clear when the time is right.
