We have early-release Wednesdays for collaboration with content and other staff. . . well that is we use to have collaboration. This year I have not had the opportunity to meet with my colleagues in content during this early-release time. Have reviewed teaching methods, strategies and how to work as a positive team. All well and good for starting the year out but it is three months into the school year. Please let me meet with my content colleagues during this time so we can improve content delivery, improve alignment with standards-common core, nationally and/or state; let me find out what lesson worked or didn’t and why; let me have feedback from my content colleagues! Give me time to work with student data and use it to plan vertically and horizontally within our content areas.
AND then give us time to integrate reading, writing and even more importantly math and science ACROSS the curriculum.
Let me collaborate!
