Hey how did the style afternoon of the Oct 30 COSSA conference/meeting go?

via erased4838853

@jwalkup we could, but what about focusing on assessment more broadly? At individual & campus/district levels?

via erased4838853 in reply to jwalkup

I think we should have an @IgniteOKC Ignite-style TEDx-style evening of presentations sometime for Oklahoma Education.

via erased4838853

I love how @AmyLoeffelholz in @YukonDistrict has a “STEM Wall of Fame” to celebrate student successes, she gives out stickers too!

@HaselwoodMath yes, absolutely! I love having our admins regularly in our classrooms, aware of the “pulse” of learning

via erased4838853 in reply to TeachFromHere

@dena_rogers parent from @NormanSchools North I talked 2said she felt personally connected 2the school b/c of the admin’s emails

via erased4838853 in reply to wfryer

@dena_rogers it’s true email alone can’t build a relationship, but a personal tone in a weekly email sent by an admin can do wonders

via erased4838853 in reply to dena_rogers

Land_ELA A5) Transparency. We are all in this together. There is not a “gotcha”!

Ron_Hughes10 A5: Communication starts with a positive relationship.

A5 It’s vital admins are in T classrooms each week. Being present is critical to being aware & available to listen

via erased4838853

A5 I recently heard a great story from a parent at Norman North HS who is LOVING the weekly email updates from the new principal!

via erased4838853

A5 Admins especially need to leverage the power of mailing lists like @MailChimp to regularly & directly send updates to parents

via erased4838853

A4 Parents need to understand that there MANY important things Ss are learning in school which aren’t reflected on a bubble sheet

via erased4838853

A4 Parents need to know it’s important for them to get connected via social media to advocate for students & our schools!

via erased4838853

A4 Parents need to know our schools require more funding to transform into the 21C learning culture our students deserve

via erased4838853

A4 Parents need 2know whatever our standards, caring, smart & passionate Ts are the most important ingredient for school success

via erased4838853

@James409Jason that is awesome - open communication channels with parents are so important!

via erased4838853 in reply to James409Jason

James409Jason At we communicate success more than failures to our Ps-Ps need 2 know their children are working hard & growing in knowledge

A4 Parents need to know we’re continuing to encourage curiosity, creativity, & problem solving in @iesSTEM class every day!

via erased4838853

@kennethdward I don’t think so. I’m optimistic we can con’t using multiple channels to become a better educated & active electorate

via erased4838853 in reply to kennethdward

A4 Parents need to know we need their support & help as we encourage students to regularly write & show what they know with media

A3 Oklahoma parents need to know the repeal of CCSS did nothing to change the toxic focus in many schools on high stakes testing :-(

via erased4838853

@MrP_tchr @DrTerriOU I agree. School cultures change through participation rather than absence. Change conversations to + themes

via erased4838853 in reply to MrP_tchr

MrP_tchr @DrTerriOU If you’re telling new teachers that, you’re wrong. Kick the bad eggs out and welcome the new Ts to great collaboration!

edgeblogger A3: Just remember that everyone is fighting a tough battle. Laugh, cry, complain, celebrate, cooperate and support each other.
