  • Instructional "Rounds"

    Posted March 26, 2015

    Doctors do it and now teachers in Bloomfield Hills Schools are, too! Why are teachers taking cues from doctors and making Instructional Rounds? "We can learn so much from watching other teachers teach," says Tony Castellani, Guidance Counselor at WHMS.

    "We know that the greatest professional development and culture shifts occur when teachers open their classrooms and make time to observe other teachers in action. At West Hills, teachers are watching other teachers in order to gather new ideas and inspiration, improve practices, and further define a common vision and language for instruction. It's important to both observe and be observed," says Castellani.

  • "Creating Cultures of Thinking" Twitter Chat - #8CulChat

    Posted March 20, 2015

    Mike Medvinsky, music teacher at EHMS and WHMS, collaborated with Dakotah Cooper, a teacher in Lake Orion, to arrange a book club and twitter chat framed by Ron Ritchhart's new book Creating Cultures of Thinking. The chat is on Tuesday nights from 8-9pm now through May 19. The hashtag used on Twitter is #8CulChat.

    “I have enjoyed the first few chapters of this book so far and think that it supports the learning environments we design and create in our classrooms and schools. The book reminds us of and provides a closer look into the Cultural Forces,” said Medvinski. He added that you do not need to read the book to participate in the chat, but that it would help to guide thinking.

    The chat is growing in popularity, even gaining the attention of author Ron Ritchhart. “I contacted Ritchhart a few weeks ago to ask if he would join our chats,” Medvinski explained, “He replied that he did not have a Twitter account. After Making Thinking Visible, Project Zero, and CASIE shared our link, I received a notification last night from him on Twitter! I think he created an account just for this chat!”
