Questions

This time of year I find my mind awash with questions: Who are my students? What will be the focus of our professional development? How will I accomplish all of my goals? What are my goals? It seems to be a common thread.

Fromhttp://georgecouros.ca/blog/archives/4005

 

“As we focus on technology in our schools, the question that we all must consider is“What is best for kids?” That should guide all conversations. The other 3 questions that I continue to consider are the following:

How does this improve learning?

If we were to do _________, what is the balance of risk vs. reward?

Is this serving the few or the majority? “

 

Other questions from Rick DuFour:

What are they learning? How do I know? What if they aren’t?

 

There are many questions we could ask at the beginning a new school year (New School Year Questions). But what other questions are the most important, the most essential?
