We Love Our Teachers
Today, the ISBE is releasing a short guidebook on lessons learned from the pandemic. Some of our State Superintendent's favorite lessons are as follows: Lesson #1: Human welfare comes first. We learned that “Maslow before Bloom” is right and just—always. Lesson #2: Learning differently is still learning. Our students may have learned more about life during this time than during a traditional school year. The lessons learned, both formally and informally, will shape the remainder of their lives, and as a result, this generation of students will be different. Lesson #3: Relationships. Relationships. Relationships. In this pandemic, we had to let go of some rituals and routines and create new ones that fit the new reality that is still unfolding. Lesson #4: Leverage technology in new, inventive, and meaningful ways. Now that our teachers and students are comfortable using computers for lessons, use this time to create adaptive change opportunities. Lesson #5: Assessments should be a part of the day-to-day learning. Linking academics to behavior compliance is not effective. Authentic assessments align with today’s world. These include project-based assessments, case studies, collaborative work, and open note tests. Lesson #6: We can do whatever we put our minds to; there are no unsolvable problems. Thank you, Charleston School Community, for Learning and Leading Every Day!
