  1. Wow Venus you have a really ambitious plan. Great idea to build a committee as your very first step. That will help with teacher buy in and support. I like how you begin by gathering information from teachers and parents so you can meet teachers and students where they are and so you can develop a plan that is customized to your campus needs. It appears that your goal is to implement station rotations, the flipped classroom, and individualized homework. That seems like a lot of change for 1 year and to much to fast can overwhelm students and teachers which can hinder success. I think you might want to consider starting with one of the three strategies the 1st year and build on from there.

  2. Peer review #3 – You have an impressive innovation project outline, Venus! From the beginning stages of the implementation process, you demonstrate how you want to use data to support the success of blended learning at Meyerpark. You have presented many ways for teachers to assess the progress of students which will be valuable when it is time to review for state assessments. How will the students self-assess in order to set personal goals in math and reading? The way you have included parents in your implementation plan will have a tremendous positive impact on parental involvement. What opportunities will you offer parents to help support their student with the blended learning model you are proposing? The way you plan to use data to differentiate instruction will certainly engage and challenge learners on your campus.
