From the highlighting activity we just did, what were your noticings and ahas, wonderings and questions, and what needs do you have as we begin using the 5D+ Model for evaluations? 1. There are posters around the room to collect your thinking. Please go to one of those posters now. You will want to take your papers from the highlighting activity with you. 2. Please select a scribe from your group who will put the groups ideas on paper. 3. Please add ideas to this poster until it is time to rotate. I will let you know when to rotate to the next poster. 4. We will repeat this process so that you will all get a chance to visit all 3 different areas. Next Steps Communicate where FAQ documents, Rubrics, and Evaluation components will be posted (FYI - previous videos sent to all staff for communication of new evaluation system will be posted in the same location) Communicate out to All Staff the draft Observation Protocol (When, how long, how often, process to expect after observations, etc.) Outline process of sharing ideas for professional learning sessions that staff are interested in having offered Additional video communication will be offered throughout the year to help answer next steps and questions that arise. Phase 3: Early/Mid September Communication Provide more information to be shared as to when observations will begin and what to expect during, after and in between observations. Provide updated FAQs that come in between now and the next update. Thank you! We look forward to learning and growing together!
