Storyboard Text

  • Running With The Pack
  • The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas
  • The Need for Communication
  • I really should email the team about our collaborative lesson... And also an email complaining about the size of my teacup polar bear.
  • In the beginning, schools were formless and void. Marzano said "Let their be enLIGHTment" and the HRS Framework was born. We worked through the PLC process with one group based on the current unit and one group looking ahead to the next unit. 'Running With The Pack' started from PLC Q1 by identifying/reviewing the guaranteed and agreed curriculum.
  • Moving Forward
  • Having worked through the 4 criticial questions prior to forming, The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas group worked on their collaborative lesson in relation to the identified SMART goal.
  • Some Key Learnings
  • Working on different units at two different stages highlighted the need for effective and regular communication. We needed to be able to discuss teaching strategies and deliver lessons as well as forward plan, 'Running With The Pack' having moved on to creating the pre-assessment.
  • Those Sneaky Road Blocks
  • We worked through all of the collaborative components of the PLC cycle in varying degrees but one that could certainly warrant more attention is the creation of the assessment plan and a unified, effective approach to providing intervention.
  • It has been interesting working through aspects of the PLC process and then finding that learning intentions don't always match up from S&S to rubrics. English is also always a challenging one in terms of having CFATs reflect the pre-test. That will be an interesting thing to continue to work on.
  • There were a couple of different road blocks faced throughout this term. One, that we all experience, is just the sheer loss of time. Meetings being interrupted, absences, etc have, at some stages hampered the continuity of our work. Also, the interruption of class time has some times prevented the collation and analysis of data and makes us a little bit stationery in terms of moving through the cycle. It has meant the need to be flexible and fluid but we have been able to support one another.
