A new “Otterprize” episode is here, and it is the first in a new series about how TRDR teachers effectively plan for instruction!
In this new video, Captain (Principal) Charlie Jett explains how TRDR teachers craft visual, student-friendly “learning targets” for lessons that are aligned to Common Core State Standards. Students are able to refer to the targets to be reminded about the purpose and intended outcomes of the lessons. This clarity of understanding leads to better student academic success. Families, instead of asking students each day, “What did you learn?” ask them, “What were the LEARNING TARGETS today?”
Creating effective learning targets is part of the professional learning that our teachers are currently engaging in together. Go Otters!
