“The best of Tier 1 in Oakland County and Beyond”
In an attempt to promote local collaboration where I work (Oakland County, Michigan), one of my mentors, Dan Hickey, created the twitter hashtag #ocprincipals. For the past few months, we’ve been having a chat on a Sunday night at 8:00 in the evening, and it has brought some leading minds both locally and nationally together to talk education.
Our next chat, on March 11 at 8:00 in the evening (EST), will be titled “The Best of Tier 1 in Oakland County and Beyond.” Each participant is challenged to bring 1 program, instructional strategy, or process happening in their school that is a highlight of Tier 1 instruction. If you have a teacher on Twitter who is part of this effort, please invite them to join us.
The purpose of our chat on March 11 is to share “what is working” in our buildings and districts, with a sincere hope that educators will be able to connect afterword to try to replicate some of these great ideas in a way that will work for their schools. Our time together won’t be about platitudes such as “great instruction starts with relationships” or “great instruction allows for risk taking.” While both statements are accurate, we’ll be seeking 1 specific thing with details that you see in your building that is working.
I’m looking forward to our next chat, please plan to join us and invite others to participate. The more learning, the better.
