Seeing the Big Picture

At our first meeting, Bayview Staff started to create a mindmap of “our school.” We wanted to see the big picture: our inquiry questions, common practices and assessments, our responses to interventions, goals, and so on. This photograph captures the work-in-progress. We know it will never be “finished,” but it is helpful to see where we are right now and where we hope to go.

  1. thanks, Peter. We’ve already made some major changes–things that we do, but didn’t officially note–like including Aboriginal content and always trying to infuse an Aboriginal perspective. Also, I realize that I don’t know how to spell ‘Hul’q’minum’ (that’s probably wrong!).But the students do receive lessons in that language from an Elder.

    I remember how much you emphasized establishing common practices and common assessments, and it’s something that we’ve been working to establish here at The View.

  2. Most Facebook users are teenagers who do not have a lot of money to spend.
    To add an exciting note to this aspect, popular public figures
    and top level politicians are now harnessing
    the potential of this tool for their specific purposes.
    It does mean figuring out where your target audience is
    engaging (social networking sites) and developing a strategy for how you’re going to
    reach them.
