As with any new implementation, vital to its success is the ability to reflect, adapt and grow. BPE teachers were recently provided that opportunity. They responded to questions and ideas on their iPads while enjoying a Hat Creek burger on Tuesday. They shared with us their enthusiasm of extending their instruction to a more diverse level which created a sense of investment in the LEAP initiative and strengthened a growth mindset. They shared with us the importance of stricter monitoring, the anticipation that children will behave like the curious beings they are and the success fostered by having a school wide standard of expectation for all students. Most importantly they noted the advantage of allowing students to express their knowledge in a way that is most meaningful to them, the value of having the right tool for those ever-present teachable moments and the increased engagement of students in their own learning. With their input, we have what we need to continue growing this endeavor.
