Principal's Chat Recap Jan 11

Thank you to those able to make our Principal’s Chat last Friday.  As a recap, we discussed the professional learning that we are doing to support creating a Culture of Thinking and making our thinking visible in the classrooms.  District administration and lead teachers at each site, including four from Torrey Hills, have engaged in work with Ron Richart, “a Senior Research Associate at Harvard Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School. His current research focuses on developing intellectual character, making thinking visible, and enhancing school and classroom culture to promote deep learning” (Click Here for a link to his biography).  I shared a Powerpoint (Principal Chat January Slides) showing how we are using our screens in the classroom and implementing thinking routines in across our campus to help all of our students share their ideas and become deep thinkers.  Please review the attached PowerPoint to see pictures showing this amazing learning!
