Tip #358

Back to School Collaboration tip from Edutopia (www.edutopia.org):

Show Up Early to Meetings: Oftentimes, more collaboration happens in the five minutes before a meeting than in the meeting itself. Showing up early isn’t always easy, but if you’re going to try, better August than March. And during meetings, try building off your colleagues’ ideas in PLCs, Data-Team, team and staff meetings. This can go a long way toward laying the groundwork for future collegial dynamics. Using stems like “Piggy-backing off what Lianne said . . . ,” or “Duane’s insight regarding the posting of learning targets was spot-on . . . ” helps build a collaborative atmosphere that’s conducive to deeper future connections.
