- We looked at the IR findings and next steps with our whole staff.
- Designed our professional learning based on our next steps and the needs of our staff. E.g. We co-constructed an understanding of self-regulated learners and realised that we needed to learn more about it's elements, including feedback, reflecting, goal setting and monitoring. Please see the 'Professional Learning' tab to see some of our presentation slides.
- For our new teachers, we organised workshops that focus on particular areas of self-regulation, including self-assessment. During these workshops we modelled the use of WALTs and success criteria.
- Staff reflected on puzzles of practice within their classrooms and set personal goals and/or Action Research questions in relation to our focus on developing self-regulated learners.
- Students were randomly selected to participate in an interview about feedback and it's impact on their learning. These findings were discussed at stage meetings.
- We currently participate in fortnightly thinking pods/study groups exploring our individual puzzles of practice in relation to self-regulation, helping each other to deepen our understanding and stay on track with our personal goals.
- During TPLs and stage meetings we are provided with opportunities to share strategies and student work samples that show our students' development as self-regulated learners.
- The executive team attended the Corwin Visible Learning Conference where they gain a deeper understanding of formative assessment and developing students as assessment-capable learners.
- Inspired by focus on 'evidence to implementation' the executive team co-created a whole school goal to achieve by the end of the year. To highlight the importance of teacher clarity, the executives performed a role play in front of the staff, showing a mismatch between the learning intention, success criteria and the task. Each staff member reflected on our whole school goal by completing a self-assessment.
