Describe the highlight of your week at the KFP Summer Institute.
The highlight of the week was definitely the rafting trip. After a long day of classroom work on Tuesday, the trip was a good escape and a good release of stress.
- How do you plan to implement something you learned at the institute in your classroom?
- I really enjoyed the session on analyzing student data. I teach at a very data focused school. Our administrators not only make a lot of decisions based on data but also equate quality of teaching with data results. I am anxious to continue the training and bring the information back to my school. I want to inform my colleagues about the 4 different aspects of student data and the importance of considering all 4 aspects, rather than just test data. It is a great reminder that we are dealing with whole people, not just test taking data making machines.
- How has the week compared with other PD opportunities you have attended?
- I appreciate the opportunity to choose which workshops I want to attend and also give input for which topics would be covered in EdCamp.
