Leadership · Curriculum · Lifelong Learning

Upon entering another staff meeting, online space, or professional development session later in the 2020-2021 school year, no one says a word.

Complete silence.

  • Silence to think and process.
  • Silence to reflect and learn.
  • Silence to pause and feel this moment. 

At the front of the room, there’s one prompt:

  • What is something you’re persevering through lately?
  • What are you learning in this journey?
  • What do you need to overcome and move forward? 

At the front of the room, the agenda is posted:

  • First 45 Minutes:
    • Consider these questions.
    • Reflect on your journey.
    • Write about it. Record a video about it.
    • Curate and cite related and supporting resources.
    • Post your reflection on your professional portfolio (website).
  • Last 15 Minutes:
    • Read and comment on one teammate reflection.
    • Read and comment on a different grade/dept reflection.
    • Read and comment on one support staff or administrator reflection.

Go in peace.
