      Rebuilding Relationships

      Kristina Doubet invites us to consider: "How can we help students re-learn how to 'go together'—to work collaboratively in a productive, peaceful, and even joyful way?" I'm always inspired by her focus on kids, their meaningful learning, and equity. ["Reviving Collaboration in Classrooms" by Kristina Doubet]

      Forward-Thinking Ideas

      As we transition between school years, I am reflecting on how we can do a better job of "future proofing" our students—thanks to Michele Borba for this excellent blueprint! ["Future-Proofing Students" by Michele Borba]
      Shelley Gates (@shelley_gates)
      Great article! Clear learning targets and success criteria is so important. "Students must actively use the success criteria to gauge their own learning. … Students are reflecting on their learning and supplying evidence in the form of work products that show that learning." ["Co-Constructing Success Criteria" by Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey]
      Jenna Moller (@jenna_moller)
      Some very good advice for your new teachers! It all starts with fostering belonging … the rest will come with effort and support! ["What New Teachers Really Need to Know About Classroom Management" by Esteban Bachelet]
      Tom Lietz (@PrincipalLietz)

      Lessons on Language

      One of the best reads I've had recently around assessment, language regarding formative vs. summative, and how we get students and teachers to focus on process vs. product. ["The Way We Talk About Assessment Matters" by Kevin Kuehn, online exclusive]
      Jen Page (@JenMPage)

      Points of Reflection

      Great tool for reflection! The lessons we learn, the opportunities that we discover, the challenges we overcome … what is the narrative you will remember about this school year? ["Feeling Like You Matter: A Checklist for Teachers" by Shelly Wilfong, on The ASCD Blog]
      Kari Montgomery (@KariRMontgomery)
      This feels like a full circle moment: Twenty-two years after I went from law school into teaching, someone at Jurist News referenced my Educational Leadership audit article ["Which Curriculum Audit is Best For Your School?" from the February 2022 issue] in a piece about auditing the law school curriculum.
