Resources

The videos above are designed as jumping off points for Focus on K2, including forming small groups, managing and engaging in centers, and using the Ladder of Feedback protocol during Common Planning Time to examine student work. The "Austin's Butterfly Drafts" lesson is a fantastic example of facilitating a student-driven conversation about a student work. It includes a teacher leading students through the critique and revision process. For more information, click the link above, and watch the video below.

Report Card (BPS only)

See the district calendar for more information. Note that K2 only has 2 marking periods, but you may find an optional Fall period to be useful.
