So, last week we had our final department meeting of the year! At this meeting the department decided on a new department focus/goal (Over the last few years we have worked collectively on two: to explicitly teach and assess annotation, and to implement and enforce our independent reading program). The new focus is “questions”! Huge!!
Regardless of the over-whelming vastness of this new department focus, I immediately began to contemplate how an emphasis on questions might fit into my individual professional development goal of improving peer feed back.
Good thing I have the summer to ponder!
