PRE-ASSESSMENT: WHERE TEACHING AND LEARNING BEGIN

What is Pre-assessment?

Pre-assessment is an action or strategy at the start of instruction that reveals student’s incoming knowledge and skills and, in response, informs teaching and learning. It can occur at the start of a lesson, the beginning of a unit, or the introduction of a new idea, concept or skill. Think about the skilled baker who may have pre-measured all the ingredients only to discover that the bread is undercooked because the oven temperature wasn’t…

The Women We Need in Leadership

 In all fields, women are seeking and finding greater voice. As they do, we remind all who lead that voice is what matters.

How our schools turn children into monsters



I've never been very interested in Ayn Rand until someone told me about a 1970 essay where she explains how Progressive education turns children into monsters. This is everything I’ve been writing about for the last 20 years. But she took it further and deeper. Nothing escapes her clinical gaze. She is actually a great child psychologist.

Interviewing: Do You Need to Be Coached? by Larry Aronstein

Interviewing: Do You Need to Be Coached?

Does The School Schedule Serve Teaching and Learning?

Considerations about scheduling and faculty assignments for 2018 - 2019 are more than likely in the planning stages right now.  In states like New York, much remains tentative until the school district budget is voted on and passed, but the development of the budget requires planning conversations and a course of direction. Often, last year's schedule is simply rolled over with minor changes, most reflecting grade level and course enrollments.
