CEL to Ponder:
Criterion 6: Using multiple student data elements to modify instruction and improve student learning.
A2 Student use of formative assessments over time
Students use formative assessments at least two to three times per year/course and within each unit to assess their own learning, determine learning goals, and monitor progress over time.
A Little Humor:
-"What do a tick and the Eiffel Tower have in common?" "They're both Paris sites."
-"What do you call a fish wearing a bowtie?" "Sofishticated."
-"How do you follow Will Smith in the snow?" "You follow the fresh prints."
-"Where do you learn to make a banana split?" "Sundae school."

-Chuck Norris recently had the idea to sell his sweat as a canned beverage. It’s now called Red Bull.
The Power of Vulnerability
Brené Brown studies human connection—our ability to empathize, belong, and love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself and understand humanity—a talk to share.
