What Matters

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 languageDictionary Definition: Learn 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.
