#DigiLit Sunday: Planning Process

digilit

Margaret Simon has invited us to blog about planning for the new school year today for DigiLit Sunday. You can read more posts here at Reflections on the Teche.

Planning has been on my mind lately and actually has been my blog topic the last two posts here and here.

Where to begin?

With my #OLW – JOYFUL!

What’s my end goal? (Backward Design)

Joyful Learning for all!

How will I achieve my end goal?

Careful appraisal of my current status,

Develop a plan to integrate my learning from this summer,

Plan, plan, plan

Short term targets and

Long range goals!
foundation

Foundation:

Bricks = Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening

Mortar = Mindset, “YET”, Brave, JOYFUL

Filling the inside with all that I know . . .

and then continuing to collaboratively increase my knowledge with my colleagues who blog, tweet and vox about literacy, learning, passion, joy, leadership and fun for students!

Sounds simple?  “The proof will be in the pudding . . . 

I will be planning on monthly check ins with my plan.

Approximately 200 days to fruition.

How will you know if your plan is working?

  2. What a collection of books! And I know this is just a fraction of what’s on your shelf.
    Those check-ins are the key! All these ideas have to bear fruit. Now, what to look at. Data, data. Student work. Student reflections on their learning. I’m thinking the DIY tools will give me a lot of valuable check in and next step data. Thanks for keeping me accountable to myself!

    1. Julieanne,
      Just a few of my books – and so many great influencers – especially when I consider my K-12 work!

      Accountable to each other . . . I like that!

  3. […] Lucy Calkins’ challenge to “outgrow ourselves as readers”.  And more recently, this #DigiLit Sunday post was also about planning for the new school […]
