Among Experts

The following is a blog written by Dwight Carter,  Principal of Gahanna Lincoln High School.  In it, he outlines a very valuable use and experience for a staff meeting.  He also shares the three main correlates of successful schools: instructional leadership, a positive school climate and culture, and frequent monitoring.  Take a moment to read the blog and see if it sparks the desire to try the activity he did and elicit the positive experience the GLHS staff had.  We all believe in the power of reflection and team building, and during a time of testing and evaluations we need to pause and focus on the positives that our staffs are all doing. Have a great week!

Here is a great article on how to use an iPad in the writing process in an effective way!
