PS 56 Focus
If we continue to develop success criteria, formative assessment, better lesson plans aligned to CCLS containing student activities focused on specific teaching points and appropriate student self-reflection strategies, then our students will have better opportunities to be independent, self-assessing learners who can lead meaningful conferences regarding where they are along the learning continuum, where they need to go and how they may get there.
This year, as a means to this end, we are working collaboratively with each other and our District to unpack Common Core Learning Standards, tease out the important components to emphasize, identify specific learning intentions with specific success criteria and specific active student engagement activities to develop Self-assessing learners.
