Looking ahead to next week, we wanted to let you know about our visitors: Becca Tatischeff, Hillary Mills, and Mia Hood and Jesse Rector.
- Becca Tatischeff, is a School Designer with Expeditionary Learning Outward Bound (and a former School Change TA).
- Hillary Mills is an Academic Dean at Metropolitan ELS http://www.metropolitanels.com/MELS/About_Metropolitan.html
- Mia Hood is a lecturer and doctoral candidate at TC, and Assistant Professor of Practice at Relay Graduate School of Education.
- Jesse Rector is Dean of School Leadership Programs at Relay, and former principal of North Star Academy in Newark http://northstar.uncommonschools.org/nsa/our-school
As you review the websites and learn about Expeditionary Learning and KIPP, think about what you can learn about the theories of action of these school designs: What are their goals? What are their key strategies/resources? How are they supposed to work?
And, please remember to post your reform description on Blackboard (if you have not done so already), and complete the book club survey. We will assign you to book groups next week.
