How We Decided on Our Focus
Will a focus on the Thinking Competencies help support;
How we help students understand the big idea?
How we help students make connections?
-To what they are learning
-To the world in general
-To other subject areas
How we help students reflect on their learning?
How We Decided On Our Focus:
In the fall of 2017 we asked students the following questions;
-What are you learning?
-What are the big ideas you are learning?
-Why is what you are learning important?
