Misc. Reminders and News

Posted in Updates at 11:18 am by maf

Hello!   I’ve been collecting bits and pieces to pass and along:

  1. Andy P. is famous! (although they spelled his name wrong!)  This is a really nice spot in the Athens Banner-Herald.
  2. Caps and gowns may be ordered through the Gwinnett/Intellicenter bookstore. Contact Meredith Haring, 678-985-6788, 1081mgr@fheg.follett.com.
  3. Your Portfolio (M.Ed.) or Applied Project (Ed.S.) is due to your advisor on April 6.

A portfolio-related question: there has been some confusion about how to align all the different assessments (projects) with the AASL standards.  Here’s a response I’ve given to this question:

As for alignment, let me direct you here:   http://it.coe.uga.edu/~mfitzger/aasl-matrix.html.   It’s a valuable synthesis activity to think about alignment for yourself, but the projects were designed to align in certain ways as outlined in the matrix. This was done about 3 years ago, and some projects possibly have drifted – but the matrix will tell you at least what they’re supposed to do. Hopefully, this will make the alignment process much easier for you.

Next Cohort 7 meeting: Apr 18, 10am.  See you there!
