With A LOT of help from friends and colleagues (@BethMooreTCRWP, @FoustP and @Vickigraf2 for starters and many more who have shared wisdom with me in the past) I’ve cobbled together a “look for” doc that I’m trying out here and there. I really like visiting classrooms, but I really like being helpful in giving feedback and information to teachers while I’m there even more. I’ve been a fan of similar docs in the past just to keep my brain in gear on what I can be paying attention to…no matter the time of day or spot in the classroom schedule. I like to stuff a copy in my binder or pocket just to have handy. Take a gander: Lookfors (2)
I like these types of docs so much I’m planning on adding other times in the classroom schedule as well…including snack, morning meeting, transitions, etc. I want to always be thinking about what I can be looking for and helping to support.
