We had lunch and then got to meet up with our region for an hour. We talked about powerful moments of the morning and then did an activity called The Identity Poster. We were to give some information about ourselves using the materials given to us, with no limitations of how we chose to present. Here's my poster, but I have to say, I didn't feel on my mark. I had a hard time determining the content and then the organization of it before time slipped away.
In the afternoon we were the audience for the class of 2013 Leadership Academy while they presented their data reports. We had 72 different reports we could choose from. I listened to a group talk about establishing three data points for RTI, a tardy reduction program, how to best utilize data days for teachers, a report on a school district who is not grading homework at any grade, and the use of Attendance Councils to improve attendance. While I was watching all these action research reports, I was excited to think of the wonderful things that are happening in Missouri schools.
Tomorrow we will hear Kim Marshall talk about effective evaluation. Cannot wait to hear his words of wisdom!
