Journal: 10 minutes – Write about How’s it going? What has happened since March?
(Yep…what seems like a lifetime ago, we did meet on March 7th, 11th, and 12th,
before the world shut down!)
: It’s time to stop gathering and analyzing data and take time to
name 3-5 findings. These questions can help you name a finding:
- What categories and themes are emerging?
- What do these categories and themes mean?
- What have you discovered? I found out…. I discovered…
Implications: For every finding, ask, SO WHAT? Because you now know this, what will your future actions be? Name it. It is the Implication for the Future.
Here are Sally’s 2019-2020 four Findings and four Implications for the Future
I discovered I still have an area for growth related to planning for and keeping records of reading conferences —> I will keep practicing conferences.
Paper and pen is best for me to record conference notes! –> I will design a notebook per class period to hold my handwritten notes.
I love having conversations with my readers. —> I will spend September and October conferring only about students’ interests.
Planning for conferences is a must. —> I will plan out who I will confer with daily and post it for students to see and plan out student partners/table seating and make and hang anchor charts.
Reflection: Reflect orally with group on how each finding will influence your teaching in the future and name the implication for the future.
