Our Focus

Focus Statement: 

During our Professional learning session on June 29, 2021, staff spent time revising our student responses and staff reflections and agreed on the below inquiry question to guide us in the coming school year: 

How can we engage students in reflecting on and communicating about their learning while making connections to big ideas? 

Action Statement: 

We landed on 3 different approaches/actions to connect our teaching to the focus question

1) supporting students in self-assessment

2) including core competencies in our planning and teaching

3) providing feedback with formative assessment. 

Evidence Statement: 

We know that our work with learners is making a difference when students are able to articulate their ideas and what they are learning, and can share how their learning connects to the big ideas.
