Tomorrow we get to share our COL inquiries with the whole Manaiakalani Cluster. This will be taking place at the Panmure Yacht Club. Opportunities to share in such forums prompts to check and look again at the components that make up your teaching inquiry.
The team I am in are targeting the '#4 Achievement Challenge' which reads:
4. Increase the achievement of Years 7-10, in reading, writing and maths, as measured against National Standards and agreed targets.
My focus is specifically maths with a target group of learners who are sitting below the national standard, combination of boys and girls, year 7 and 8. Our COL team for this particular achievement challenge are going to use the following headings to organise our presentation.
- What the inquiry is about
- Actions taken
- Failures or setbacks
- Changes in the learning
- Changes in our practice
I'm looking forward to being there the whole day where we will hear from our MIT Spark teachers, our student ambassadors from every school in the cluster, feedback from WF Researchers team and more. Always a valuable time of learning and reflecting. Kia Manuia!
