'What To Look For' Documents Coming Soon!
Many of you have already experienced a sneak preview of the 'What To Look For' documents at last May's Spring Convening. At the time it was a pilot project and only two grade level documents existed for mathematics. Since then we've collected feedback from districts and have made many updates and upgrades! Now DESE has K-8th grade for mathematics and multiple grade levels for science available. These documents will be available shortly on the DESE website.
Additionally, I will be supporting a workshop at the Fall Convening on how to use the 'What To Look For' documents. The workshop is titled, Developing a Shared Understanding of Quality Practice, and will incorporate multiple classroom videos from the 40 high quality videos that DESE recently released. More information on the Fall Convening can be found here. See you in Marlborough on either the 27th or 28th of October!
