  1. I highly agree with and value the principal of making use of feedback to improve skills...

    As a Foreign Language teacher I find it extremely valuable to give continual feedback to my students regarding their writing and speaking. It greatly helps them improve their skills.

  2. The following are changes recommended by the Pierremont staff. * Use reflection and goal-setting to self-assess their work OR, * Self-assess their learning through reflection and goal-setting * test ideas........ (Can we "ensure" students take a risk or make a mistake? (We can "create an environment that is safe for these things to occur.) * engage their initial understanding..... (Change "engage" to "activate".) * construct new knowledge..... (when you review the citation for this principle it does not encompass "..and push beyond one's comfort level.")

  3. These principles obviously target life-long learners, but at times, the Learning Principles seem wordy, heavy and overwhelming. Is there a "kid friendly" version that will be presented to students so that they have some ownership? Is there going to be an emphasis in any of the principles on creativity and self expression?

  4. Ten Learning Principles seems wordy and overwhelming. We would like for the Principles to be combined to be fewer.

  5. As written, it does not demonstrate the same depth as the other principles. It appears to be a subset of other principles especially "make meaning of content and learn with undertanding".

  6. On the "Learning Principles", the 7th bullet down, "engage their initial understandings...." seems a little weak. It seems like it could just be a sub-part of the second bullet "make meaning of content..." because in order to make meaning of content students need to engage their initial understandings. This is how we make connections so that learning with understanding takes place.

  7. We would like to see more emphasis on creativity, innovation, and artistic expression represented.

  8. I like how these principles acknowledge the injustice of having four years of high school determine the rest of a student's life. They are targeted at extending learning lifelong. Our concerns as teachers of course are about being evaluated; student and parent commitment.

  9. If you break these learning principles down into simple terms, we believe that Parkway teachers already accomplish all of these things. Through professional development and other forums, the teachers of Parkway are well equipped.

  10. experience learning challenges that match their needs and personal interests is GOOD --we know as teachers of teenagers the importance of linking our teaching to our students' interests and experiences...allow us the freedom to continue doing this
