Impact Teams (a form of PLCs) are teams of educators committed to understanding their impact on student learning by focusing on critical learning goals, analyzing evidence, and taking collective action. In this webinar, Paul Bloomberg and Barb Pitchford will define the Impact Teams model, discuss the research behind it, and share two foundational protocols for leading Impact Teams. Learn how Impact Teams support collaborative learning around the formative assessment process in the classroom!
These 5th grade students are engaging in peer assessment for summary writing. Their teachers, Lana Regenbogen & Gabriella Pasquale recorded the video in the hallway during class. They are ICT (Integrated Collaborative Teaching) teachers at PS 5 in Staten Island, NY.
Deanna Marco, the principal of PS 9 in Staten Island, engaged these first graders in peer assessment during physical education. She recorded them in the hallway of the school, while the rest of the students were in PE. Jason Ericson, PE teacher at PS 9 developed the Bowling Peer Assessment Rubric.
