Close reading, Growth Mindset, and Core Actions 1 and 3, from the Instructional Practice Guides (IPG), were the focus on the most recent A&S meeting. Elementary principals applied the IPG with video of Washoe 3rd grade teacher Chris Hayes filmed by America Achieves. Administrators also engaged in a close reading of a piece by Carol Dweck on “Growth Mindset” and built their own professional leadership with work around Core Action 3 and the CCSS Implementation Guide from the National Association of Elementary School Principals. The PowerPoint and the handouts are linked below.
