ASV Staff Summer Work Week

ASV Staff Summer Work Week

From Tuesday to Thursday the ASV staff completed the traditional summer session of the Faculty Work Week. Teachers had time to work on the closure of the 2018-2019 academic year while also engaging in planning for the 2019-2020 academic year.  Teachers continued professional development in Understanding by Design (UbD) by Ms. Elizabeth Cooney.

Professional development in UbD began November 2, 2018 and will continue as the school moves forward in using this state-of-the art planning process that is also known as “backwards design.”  The UbD process includes significant collaboration across grade levels to identify the essential learning that should transfer from grade to grade (the big ideas), focusing assessments on those big ideas, and then planning backwards to teach for understanding.
