CSSU / SCS Transferable Standards
To help us all better understand this work, we thought it would be helpful to frame our weekly picture summary around a particular transferable standard. For this week we went looking for pictures of students engaged in work that encompasses Responsible and Involved Citizenship standard.
So where did we find students learning to collaborate with each other - we certainly didn't have to look hard since it is such a fundamental focus of creating a positive classroom culture it seemed to be everywhere we looked. A Friday morning walk-around in our C Wing found some rich examples of this learning in action.
|It starts young - building a unifix "snake" together in Mrs. Kendrick's class|
|Cooperative games in Mrs. Burritt's music classroom|
|Learning to blend as a flute ensemble in Mr Buckingham's lessons|
|All of our athletics programs also emphasize team and collaboration as well - here the Girls B soccer takes on Camels Hump|
Certainly a lot more to come - as we work through helping us all understand where these transferable standards fit in conjunction of our more traditional understanding of reading, writing and 'rithmetic. Those are all still there as well - and we'll highlight them more over the coming weeks. Hope your son or daughter wasn't too tired after their first full week of school - have to admit I was dragging a bit as I taught a Skills4Life class 8th period on Friday :-) Glad for a weekend break!
