"Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend." ~Theophrastus
And....once it's spent, you can never get it back.
Therefore, the premise of collaborative inquiry is to work toward developing highly efficient and effective teams, so time is not wasted and impact is maximized.
Last week several of us got to spend time in a workshop with Dr. Laura Lipton. Day one of the session was all about providing us with structures, strategies, and principals for facilitating collaborative inquiry teams.
While reflecting upon the workshop, I wondered if there was a video from Dr. Lipton about data teams. I found one that I want to share entitled, Growing as a Group: Effective Use of Teacher Time.
In this video, she discusses the 5 Assumptions of Effective Group Work. I’ll list them below the video, but also want you watch the 6 min video as she explains the assumptions and their application.
In two places in the video, she mentions group assessments and/or inventories. If you group is looking for one, see the below links:
Here’s to a great week of learning and growing…… Countdown to spring break: 8 days. :)
