+ Introduction: Adult Learning Review the Adult Learning page from the Teacher Leadership Framework. Review your individual self-assessment you took at our last meeting – consider, “What do you notice about how you assessed yourself in this area?” Reflect on “Where do you need to build capacity when you work with adult learners? What makes you say that?”
+ Adult Learning: Group Dynamics and Knowing Yourself Read ‘Predictable Dynamics in Groups’ article. On the back of the article you have 4 lines representing the continua from the article: TaskRelationship CertaintyAmbiguity DetailBig Picture AutonomyCollaboration Mark an ‘X’ where you see yourself on each continuum. What are the implications of these preferences for you as a Fellow and your work to implement the Common Core?
+ Adult Learning: Group Dynamics Create a Human Continuum with the following (we’ll do this 4x – one for each): 1.Task – Relationship 2.Certainty – Ambiguity 3.Detailed – Big Picture 4.Autonomy - Collaboration
