Learning Styles Activity (Personal Learning Plan)
(This is a little out of order in the PLP packet, you can find it after the Academic Check in page.)
1. Advisors:  Please go over the information at the top of the page with your advisees before having them begin the activity.  

Students take quiz here:  
Online Learning Styles Quiz   ( below before you begin....)  Be sure to answer every question before you hit submit!
(Note:  Sometimes the quiz gets moved to the bottom of the page but the quiz is there.....If the quiz does not show up at the top, simply scroll down to the bottom of the page.   You may also get a pink box  with error messages on each page of the quiz but ....each time you hit submit just keep scrolling down and the quiz will still be there. ) 

2. After students have completed the activity, lead a discussion for students to report out what they learned and what tips they may use.  (if no time, do this on Thursday.)  You might also share your own learning style and what strategies you use.

Please show in an 8 minute advisory by next Wednesday.

No 30 minute advisory today.  (We will follow the 8 minute schedule)

March 23, 2016 
Students will be competing two important surveys today, a technology survey and a survey to get feedback from students about cafeteria offerings. Be sure to leave 20 minutes for the technology survey please.

Lunch survey link here
Lori tried to survey the kids during lunch but she had a lot of students not take it seriously. The other issue is that students don't seem to understand that she has certain regulations that she has to follow so complaining about the whole wheat pasta really can't accomplish anything because it is a regulation. I was hoping that if we did this in advisory and educated the kids a bit more about the regulations, they might provide her more helpful and specific feedback.

1. Please share the sample regulations with the students 
2. Ask the students as a group for feedback on the questions provided. Please either print this out and put it in my mailbox (Renee) or you could email it to me. I will then give them to Lori all at once. Thanks for your help.

2. Technology survey


Clarity allows our school to get insight from parents, teachers, and students regarding the impact of technology use in both our homes and schools. It is a web-based and research-driven tool that helps us evaluate the current technology resources available to our teachers and students.

Anonymous responses are collected through questionnaires to help us make better decisions about resources needed, training allocated (professional development), and support required, to enhance the effective use of educational technology.

There are no right or wrong answers. Everyone will have a different set of answers to these questions, depending on his/her different experiences.
