WD #3 Collective Idea Generation 1.What’s working in terms of sustaining the momentum in your schools? What else could be done? 2.What impacts are you noticing on the learning of FNMI, “hallway” or at risk students?
Large group synthesis 1.What important ideas have you surfaced? 2.Which ideas seem work pursuing?
WD#5 – Next Steps Homework for the school leadership team Meet with other members of your school leadership team to determine what data/evidence you might gather to determine how the learning environment is improving for FNMI, hallway and/or at risk students. (TTFM, observations, conversations, work samples etc.) What is the evidence telling you about the schooling experience of these students?
Next Steps – Looking for Evidence 1.What might be some of the indicators of inclusive learning environments 2.TTFM survey data – what’s it telling you? 3.Other data sources?
Critical Reflections and Feedforward What have you learned that you are anxious to try? What else do you need to learn? Other feedback?
