  15. 15. Graphic Organizers Graphic Organizers can be used as a pre or post teaching strategy. (activate prior knowledge, introduce vocabulary, or reinforce key concepts) Organizers should be taught as a process for students to organize their own thinking – not always as a final product to be graded. These are great tools for extracting information for pre-writing as well. (Constructed Response or Performance Task)

Change is MESSY!  Fullan: “The more accustomed one becomes to dealing with the unknown, the more one understands that creative breakthroughs are always preceded by periods of cloudy thinking, confusion, exploration, trial and stress; followed by periods of excitement and growing confidence as one pursues purposeful change, or copes with unwanted change.
  23. 23. Fullan  Those individuals and organizations that are most effective do not experience fewer problems, less stressful situations, and greater fortune, they just deal with them differently.
  24. 24. Change is like a planned journey into uncharted waters on a leaky boat with a mutinous crew. Michael Fullan
