  • Teachers aren’t resistant because it isn’t effective, but resistant because they don’t believe it will work.
  • If there is a working model that your campus can see, the resistance will gradually reduce.
  • Some teachers need a model to see that the support is there.
  • Getting everyone in a room and talking about what PBL looks like.
  • Worked in the district 6 months before we even begin the first training.
  • Without that administrator support, any initiative will fail.
  • Classrooms are laboratories.
  • What basis am I using to reevaluate what I’m doing to make my practice better.
  • Teach a protocol of precise feedback for process. Peer review model.
  • Teaching people how to move forward, how to have honest conversations.
