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.
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!
Bricks = Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening
Mortar = Mindset, “YET”, Brave, JOYFUL
Filling the inside with all that I know . . .
Determining Priorities Based on Data . . .
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?
