Professional Learning Team Meets...
The focus of this Monthly meeting is Formative Assessments, CAFE & Daily 5.
We had 13 teachers attend this month for the 1 hour meeting.
During the meeting we had Casie Campbell who is a Student Teacher in Mrs. Sweet's 2nd grade classroom, share the Formative Assessments that she has been doing. Her presentation was very impressive and she has agreed to be video taped to share in more detail--so check back, her interview will be posted soon.
Stacy Gilland, one of Norman Elementary's 2nd grade teachers shared what she's been doing in CAFE.
From there we watched a couple videos from Dylan Wiliam. He has become one of my favorite Formative Assessment Specialist...
