I have taught from grades K-8, have a reading endorsement, and am passionate in guiding students in becoming responsible learners. I love the outdoors, nature, the science of how life works, and read/journal daily in order to continue my own learning process. Above all, I want students to feel a sense of empowerment in who they become in their lives.
We aren't really trying to analyze impact at this point since we believe in our overall goal, but once we design a schedule that allows for such interaction, we will begin thinking about such measurements, including student voice in how they are growing or inhibited. I have mtgs. scheduled with my principal and the special services team (OT, Speech, etc) which will further expand the criteria/constraint understanding , then the Connect team begins generating options!
A checklist is a great idea! I keep getting bogged down by the current demands of our schedule, having a sinking feeling that those demands are not adaptable. Focusing on the checklist will allow me to pinpoint the needs. Thanks
