At the end of October, CC/OM held a workshop for teachers that are visiting sites this year at Briar Hill School. Mike West, who was at Museum School in September shared his process for skill building and creating a culture of learning within his class. Two other teachers from Briar Hill were at Museum School as well, Celeste Ruff and Leslie LeVesconte. This was a fantastic experience for us because we got to see the impact of the week at Glenbow on three classes.
Skills were practiced.
To document their learning, students returned to their journals and drew from their experience to create multi-dimensional representations of their learning. Expectations were clearly stated.
The work that was, and still is, being produced clearly demonstrates student centered learning that shows they were engaged and challenged to think deeply.
Thank you to Briar Hill grade 3/4′s for three fantastic weeks!
