Franklin School of Innovation Faculty Crew Focus: Deeper Learning, Self-Reflection, and SMART Goal-Setting

Did you know that the FSI Faculty regularly circles up for professional learning on Friday afternoons?  Our teachers and administrators actively and collaboratively “dig in, engage, and apply” Habits of Scholarship in our research, preparation, and planning for student-centered learning. We examine EL Education Design Principles, best practices, and exemplars to plan projects, expeditions, daily lessons, and formative assessments that will actively engage FSI scholars in becoming leaders of their own learningIMG_8208

This week’s focus was on Student-led Conferences and Deeper Learning.  FSI Faculty practiced self-reflection and SMART goal-setting in order to identify individual professional learning goals that will ultimately serve our students. We practiced Student-led Conferences and offered feedback to one another, an authentic demonstration of FSI’s commitment to developing leaders of life-long learning!

This fall semester’s Student-Led Conferences will be an exciting first for many FSI families.  Save the date:  October 2.  More info will be coming soon!  In the meantime, to find out more about the concept of “Deeper Learning” and the purpose/process of student-led conferences, here’s a great article from Mindshift:  http://ww2.kqed.org/mindshift/2014/09/23/why-students-should-take-the-lead-in-parent-teacher-conferences/IMG_8301 IMG_8300 IMG_8299 IMG_8298 IMG_8297 IMG_8296
