I found the Oct 9 session on Assessment AS Learning to be a reflective event. Part of me was wishing to be back in the classroom to see how I can do better by my children and my professional practice. Sometimes, it is hard being out of the classroom as my inspirations do not get to become aspirations and I can only hope to use my enthusiasm to inspire other teachers! Hmm, which is the more difficult task?
It was wonderful to work so collaboratively all day with Claudia and Valerie. The professional conversations were very stimulating and thought-provoking. In designing our visual, we were looking at creating a poster that could possibly be printed and hung on a wall for frequent reference. While it was titled Assessment As Learning, in reality, it could be entitled, Effective Coaching. Our rainbow themed poster was meant to portray improved student learning as the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…ahhh to dream!
