On Tuesday, August 22, teachers across the district had an opportunity to dig into a preview of our Instructional Core work over the 17-18 school year. We began with an emphasis on Growth Mindset and discussed how we can approach our own learning as well as student learning through a growth mindset lens. Hopefully, you were able to wipe the cobwebs off as we reviewed last year’s content.
This year, expect a deep dive into differentiation from our most advanced to our most struggling learners. Our goal will be to provide you with resources and support to help you differentiate to meet the needs of all learners in your classroom.
