Improving Instructional Practices.
MS. PEDDYREDDY'S 4TH PERIOD INTRO TO ENGINEERING DESIGN CLASS
WEEK 8 OF ADVISORY 1
During this week, students are taking their final exams, Period 1 and 3 on Tuesday, Periods 2 and 4 on Wednesday. Portfolio presentations are next week, on October 26 and 27. In order to present portfolios, students should be keeping their work in e-Portfolios on CANVAS, or in One Drive. If you need support with this process, please see your Department Chairperson.
As we discussed in the professional development day, the amount of content is not as important as the students’ depth of understanding, and their development of “soft” skills such as organization, planning, time management. Preparing for portfolios can be a celebration and reflection on work as opposed to a stressful experience. Thank you to all Departments for brainstorming how to make the portfolio presentation process a reflective activity that builds student confidence and perseverance.
In order to build on our themes of consistency and relationship building ,we will use the Agenda Book as a tool. The Books have arrived and will be distributed by PLT in Middle School, and by ELA class in high school. Agenda books are the only approved pass for moving throughout the building, and it is important for all staff members to use this tool consistently.
