Creating an Integrated Student Growth Objective

Creating an Integrated Student Growth Objective

One of the most challenging aspects of writing a student growth objective is the feeling of “am I doing this right?”  One of the ways I found to help with this feeling is to actually create an integrated student growth objective in collaboration with another teacher.  This way, we work towards a common goal. All while still teaching the content, skills and processes needed in our own area.

I shared how to do this at our Winter Online STEAM Conference, but today I wanted to give you an overview of the process in our weekly video.  Plus, I’m including a helpful graphic that you print and use to help you through each step.
