@loudlearning I don’t like the question. Should elementary schools teach reading and math via science and social studies? Yes. @kathyiwanicki My non-education faves are TED Radio Hour, Freakinomics, How I Built That, Revisionist History and Hidden Brain. @specialtechie @kathyiwanicki @cultofpedagogy @GTeacherTribe @JakeMillerTech @ShakeUpLearning @jmattmiller @ChouinardJahant You are a writer, Melissa! @PintoBeanz11 Thank you.

You are amazing and generous.Hey PLN, has anyone created ISTE benchmarks for kindergarten or "I Can Statements"? #kinderchat #k2cantoo # kindergarten #ISTE @PintoBeanz11 @finleyt Teachers need to understand that the student's brain has been altered by the trauma in ways that affect le…
@TamiJ123 I didn’t know Marzano had a PLC process. I was trained in PLC based on DuFour and Fullan’s work. I am goi… challenge is not letting your PLC get hijacked by other team to-dos and sticking with established norms. #pd4uandme @TamiJ123 What is the difference between a Marzano PLC and a Fullan PLC? @teresagross625 Are your monthly meetings learning-cycle focused?We have weekly PLCs by grade level. They vary from team to team how close they run to a true PLC model. #pd4uandmeGood morning. Jumping in for a minute! Lia from So Cal. Awake too early. Love PLCs. #pd4uandme

The power of knowing your students’ names and how to pronounce them is not lost on me! #notlisa #edtechteam
Heading home! Thanks, Paul and #pln365 @posickj Our are too. Leadership team has added some new roles to help us stay on track. Tangents can kill a meeting.A4: My team uses Fist to 5. 5 fingers up is all in, etc. Discussion about any 3 or less and re-vote. #pln365A3: When time is of the essence, that is when sending a text message or a message through any number of communicati… @posickj That is a huge step in being inclusive and culturally responsive in deed and not just in theory. Kudos to you! @tyarnold18 That is a challenge. The district sends notices out to ELL students' families in Spanish regardless of the language they speak. @posickj So true! Its easy to make meetings a "one and done" instead of the starting point for further reflection and action.A2: I think timeliness is the goal for us. #pln365 @posickj Our weekly PLC meetings have shared agendas as well, but TBH I don't think anyone looks at them on a regular basis.A1: The form of communication depends on the situation. Emails are the most likely to get missed. #PLN365 @PaulONeill1972 I think before we can trust someone personally, who may be new to us, we need to at least trust the… communication requires trust. #pln365Good evening!
