Educational buzz words and phrases are wonderful, aren't they? At the beginning of the year, our new administrator was overly fond of saying "We're building the plane as we're flying it" in reference to our school-wide implementation of common core. Now, that they year is progressing (and we're flying a plane that's not quite built yet LOL) we've been asked to use proficiency scales in our classrooms. "Who owns the learning?" is now the buzz phrase that is going around our school. So much so that our school created a video to showcase this. It's called, surprisingly enough, "Who owns the learning?" Check out the youtube link here: Who Owns the Learning? It actually showcases one of my students. He's talking about math journals. And the anchor charts that are shown in the video in the first two sections are from my classroom.
More to come with proficiency scales- I've got a freebie to share and a new product coming soon to use with the proficiency scale.
Wishing you all a Happy Holidays and a wonderful winter break!
