Reflecting/Brainstorming Activity• Using the SLMC and ITF Professional Standards, Piloted Evaluation Rubrics, CCES, and your colleagues’ expertise, complete the chart (available for you to download from wiki): – identify activities that you currently implement which correlate to your professional standards – work w/table members to brainstorm additional Accomplished/Distinguished actions you could take to meet your professional standards (I would recommend working with SLMCs and ITFs from districts other than your own. Different perspectives may be enlightening.) – determine how these activities are/can be used for CCES implementation in your media program, school, and beyond
