As I have been avoiding my Nintendo Switch over Spring Break, I came across a sheet of paper I had scribbled things on during a professional development day earlier this year. I want to save those thoughts for later, so I can flesh them out.
Specifically that morning, we were working on two different areas: our district’s instructional framework (gradual release of responsibility/productive group work) and teaching behavior. Here are my notes:
- Need to organize by skill
- Identify that skill
- Give geedback towards that skill
Productive Group Work
- What is the students’ role? Have a content purpose AND a behavior purpose (tied to Work Habits)
- Symphonic Band
- Flex Band Piece?
- SATB Piece?
- Tuesday Night Club
- Real Easy Book
- LJS Tunes
What if we setup by units (concert sets?) instead of 6 week grading periods? What skills do they need for this concert set?
