Quote of the week
From a new book
“Instructional Excellence. Equitable schools provide all students with an excellent education that allows them to collaborate with other learners. In Chapter 4, we review the types of learning environments that students deserve—ones that include clearly articulated learning targets, well-defined measures of success, and tasks that are rigorous and aligned. We focus on the implementation of the gradual release of responsibility as a framework to ensure that students develop confidence and competence.”
“The Equity Taxonomy”
by Dominique Smith, Nancy E. Frey, Ian Pumpian and Douglas E. Fisher

In this bright, uplifting talk, Ajayi shares three questions to ask yourself if you’re teetering on the edge of speaking up or quieting down — and encourages all of us to get a little more comfortable with being uncomfortable.
