In anticipation of a presentation I need to do in August about the Standards, I am going back to the beginning to study them and figure out how, when, and if I really use these standards. This is requiring lots of reflection, pulling out lesson plans and projects, and reading the many books and journal articles I have collected. My essential question for this exploration is "How do the AASL Standards improve the teaching and learning I do with my students?"
Today, inquiry. I feel very competent in this area, but am I really? time to read, and find out.
