goal setting 2019-2020

Clarify: Checking for understanding. I would like to check regularly for understanding using different  techniques such as questioning, quizzes, exist slips, and monitoring student work. Last year when I taught First Grade, I spend most time unpacking the units, and tried to figure out what to teach. Students did pretty well towards the end of the year, but I saw the learning gap between native Chinese speakers and non-native Chinese speakers was still pretty big. This year I would like to use various assessment strategies to collect  data so that  I know all my students’ exact needs, provide feedback/extra supports right away and try to close the learning gap as much as I can. 


Professional Growth Pre-Survey Reflection


Welcome to your Professional Learning Blog! This is a place for you to post your goals, and reflect on them throughout the year.

  • Decide on your goal, perhaps in consultation with your colleagues or principal, and create a post to share with this online professional learning community that you are now a part of! Categorise this post in Goal Setting. Set your goal by considering:
    • Self assessment and reflection based on new teacher standards  (Tripod 7C’s)
    • Previous or new observation data from peers and principals
    • Student surveys (online surveys developed and aligned with 7C’s)
  • Identify colleagues, coaches, principals etc. that will play a supporting role in achieving your goal, and invite them to view and comment on your post. Encourage them to bookmark your blog and visit regularly.
  • Throughout the year, collect and share evidence to support your progress. Categorise these posts in Reflection.
  • Encourage your colleagues to share your learning journey by engaging with your blog. In return, engage with their blog (and others across the School)
  • You may also like to share work that your students have created or your own professional achievements that may not be directly related to your goal setting. This is encouraged! Categorise these posts as Showcase.

If you need support using this platform, please don’t hesitate to contact Ed Tech, we are always happy to be of assistance!
