GOAL 3 – Developing Confident Learners
To work to ensure that each student believes that he/she is a confident learner.
Continue staff/parent discussion around Assessment For Learning
- continue to move from a focus on grades, marks to a focus on providing descriptive feedback
- including students in process of assessment (self, peer, development of criteria and learning outcomes)
- Parent forum, staff meeting discussion, professional development
Growth Mindset – students understand that their intelligence/ability is not fixed and that we are all learners.
Encourage risk-taking in our students so they understand that making mistakes is actually part of the learning process
Continue to work toward a culture in which “students know what to do when they don’t know what to do”
- help to create a culture of learning and problem solving
Students are aware of their strengths and are provided with the opportunity to use them in school
Identity/Strengths Posters, students bring in their strengths to their learning through options for learning activities
Continue to work within our Enhancement Agreement to best support our Aboriginal students
Continue to work with teacher-librarian to evolve role to encourage project-based learning and educational technology.
