FRUSTRATION!!!! I've sent emails to the appropriate members of my DO since returning from the Summer Institute (before our school year started) expressing my interest and eagerness to assist in bringing our members on-board with CCSS and Smarter Balance assessments, but have apparently hit a road block of "we control the information."  At this point, there has been very little trickling down.Fortunately, our local association is supportive and I hope to get some significant facetime with our…Continue

Hello all, The IPD Strand was the best. All of the presenters were great and inspiring. I have a request. There is one slide in particular from Patrick Traynor's presentation that I would like to show my staff.  He showed how the Smarter balance test program would provide succeeding questions based on the student's responses. I can't find it. Will Patrick's presentation be posted?  Thank you.

I am glad you were in  the IPD Strand.  It is good to hear about your excitement. I hope you continue to be an ambassador and an advocate to this profession and remember what Doug Reeves said about the value practice, what Bob Keeble said about commitment and power and what Andy Hargeaves said about the power of professional capital. All three of these concepts are beneficial in your attempt to implement the Common Core State Standards and to assure you reach capacity in your respective district.  Thanks again for being one of many to make the IPD Strand a success.

 I feel completely rejuvenated and excited about learning.  I was spouting off to my colleagues all the things I learned during the week and  I didn't realize that I had learned so much.  Thank you for a wonderful week.

I found an interesting quote I thought I'd share in follow-up to the mention of poverty this week. Poverty is more than lack of money. According to Jensen (2009, p. 3), poverty is defined as “a chronic and debilitating condition that results from multiple adverse synergistic risk factors, and affects the mind, body, and soul. It is complex; it does not mean the same thing for all people.”

Thank you for the encouraging words. We all need to remember how powerful those words, and the people who utter them are.

I hope you are enjoying the strand and it is meeting your expectations. The past few days, the IPD Strand has covered a lot. It has focused on the Common Core State Standards and assessments with the teacher taking the leadership role during the implementation.  The mere fact you are here indicates to me that you are a leader.  I have come to the conclusion that leadership is influence. I hoping you are going to exert your influence when you return toyour respective school. If you were to remove for a moment the moral issues behind it, there is only one definition, according to John C. Maxell in his book "Developing the Leader Within You," leadership is the ability to  obtain followers.  In our business, its call developing "power" as wqe walk side-by-side. I think that is what you are doing by being here at the IPD Strand.  I am glad that you are here.  Welcome again!
