Here’s an activity to do with your educators…

  1. Watch this video (maybe 3 times?)

  1. Try to answer the following questions about the video (one focal question per viewing?)

What are students doing? (e.g., they’re building something, they’re cooking, they’re designing)

Where are the settings in which they’re doing it? (e.g., they’re at the beach, they’re in an art room, they’re out in a field)

How are they doing their work? (e.g., they’re collaborating around a screen, they’re talking to people on the street, they’re cutting boards)

  1. How is this learning similar to or different from the learning that our students experience locally? How often do our students get to learn this way and in which classes and settings?
  2. What are the benefits of this kind of learning for students and do we want more of this locally? Why or why not?

Thanks for the resource, High Tech High!

Quick thoughts on vertical discussions

We believe in thanking our sources! This post was sourced from the following blog/website: http://dangerouslyirrelevant.org/2022/02/quick-thoughts-on-vertical-discussions.html

A school leader in one of my Facebook groups asked if anyone had a discussion guide for the next time their teachers held vertical discussions across grade levels. Here was my response:

I’ve done this with schools before. Not exactly sure what the desired outcome of your conversations is, but I’ve seen really powerful discussion arise from the simple questions of “What do you expect students to know and be able to do by the end of their school year with you?” (to the lower grade team) and “What do you expect students to know and be able to do when they enter your classroom at the beginning of the school year?” (to the higher grade team)…

Small group conversation around those two questions can easily fill most of an hour (be sure to have them take notes!). Also helpful to have some debrief time at the end where you just ask folks “What did you hear today? What does that mean for our practice? How can I be of support?

Good luck and have fun!

What do you like your educators to talk about in their vertical discussions?

Sad news out of Palm Coast, Florida

We believe in thanking our sources! This post was sourced from the following blog/website: http://dangerouslyirrelevant.org/2022/03/sad-news-out-of-palm-coast-florida.html

Sad news out of Palm Coast, Florida… 

Over 500 students at Flagler-Palm Coast High School protested the state’s anti-LGBTQ ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill yesterday by walking out of school for 20 minutes or so. The main organizer of the event was suspended ‘until further notice’ (which is illegal under U.S. Supreme Court precedent) by the high school principal for bringing and distributing pride flags to students. The principal told the student that he was ‘disrespectful and openly advocating against staff.’ Before the protest, the principal pulled the student aside and ‘voiced his opposition’ to the pride flags. 

As the article in the Daytona Beach News-Journal notes, “students who showed up to the stadium with flags and other pride-related merchandise were blocked by administrators attempting to confiscate them.” Additionally, “students at the event said administrators circled protesters in the stadium, threatening them with discipline if they didn’t turn in their pride and LGBTQ+ flags.”

The school district spokesperson said that student leaders were told no flags prior to and at the beginning of the event “so as to avoid undue safety concerns and campus disruptions.” Here are the flags in question that apparently were a disruptive safety concern:

Gay Pride Flags

The school district superintendent also has banned the book, All Boys Aren’t Blue, from school libraries so there appear to be ongoing issues in the community regarding equity, acceptance, and inclusion.

As student bodies continue to become more diverse – and as LGBTQIA+ students and their families continue to advocate for greater acceptance of their human rights and dignity – it is imperative that school administrators figure out ways to move their school systems forward, not backward.

We need to do better than this.
