A3 Great question! We do have the opportunity to hold spiral discussions. which helps us maintain existing successful strategies & also to see how the curriculum is aligned. Where they've been and need to go. Plus fresh ideas! #5thchat
#5thchat A4: Short answer: Always stay focused on what's best for students. Their needs keep us humble. If Ts become cliquish with each other, they usually don't have good relationships with their students.
I know. We don’t have time to meet with others so our team building is during our meetings. It’s not meant to alienate anyone, but to bring people in. I really appreciate being pushed on this thought #5thchat
Depends on what we're discussing. We discuss individual students as we look at each skill and look at the intervention planned. We also look at the whole group as we discuss whole group plans/lessons. #5thchat
#5thchat A7: Are you talking moving Ts to other grade levels! If so, I feel it depends on individual Ts. I prefer to change every 4-5 years because I get bored. However, I know some who have taught same grade for 20 years who are phenomenal.
