It began with the shared vision. My students shocked me with their investment in our class shared vision. They wrote it by themselves and they referred to it weekly if not daily. That was the starting point for me. After I witnessed the change in my class simply over a shared vision, I was hooked!
Next school year I will begin with data binders and enable my students to track their accomplishments. I am excited about this new endeavor and look forward to my next group of personalized learners!
