Impact inquiry

Thinking and thinking before reacting. This is part in parcel of the impact I have experienced from my inquiry. Facts are presented as who did what to whom - teacher and student, my job now is to think about the wind that had the canoe (student) arrive where they have. Often this is NOT a quick process, I must reflect and tap into supports in my senior leadership team and colleagues.

 In our group sharing today I can draw parallels. In everyone's attention to breaking down the big picture to steps, scaffolding, detail - the content of the winds for our students. Regardless of whether it's a reading, maths, small group - behavioural - cognitive - there's a need to pay attention to the small that makes up the big.
