Mission Aligned Planning, Assignments, and Assessments

Robyn Burlew July 19, 2017

Presented at:
SCL Summer Conference 2017


Mission statements too often grace brochures and walls without informing day-to-day practice in the classroom. Teachers need to consider their school's mission statements as they plan and execute their classes. When we fail to do so, students perceive that we don't really mean what is written in our lofty documents. This workshop will focus on practical application of philosophical principles and will be particularly suited for the newer teachers.
