Week 3 Discussion 1 – Data Teams and Data-Driven Dialogue
After completing this week's Readings and Resources, access the links below and watch the videos.
Data-Driven Dialogue (Fairfax County Virginia Public Schools)
One of the ways to bring everyone on your staff into the conversation is collaboration through data teams and data-driven dialogue. While these will not replace the importance of each teacher's using data to inform instruction, it is a way to facilitate effective "agents of change."
As you view the videos, where have you seen this type of collaboration in your school?
Do the teachers in your school feel as passionate as the teachers in these videos?
If you were the school executive, what would you change as you compare/contrast what you see in the videos to what you see taking place in your building?
Your initial response is due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words. The initial posting should be a statement of your point of view on the question, supported by the required readings.
