We are excited about this year’s Powerful Conversations Network and are pleased that you will be part of this vibrant learning community!

This year, we will continue our study of Leaders of Their Own Learning, with an eye to maximize impact. To help school teams focus on their key instructional priorities—be in student-engaged assessment or another important instructional issue—we will augment our learning with the new book, The Internal Coherence Framework: Creating the Conditions for Continuous Improvement, by Forman, Stosich, and Bocala.

While the book has a daunting title, it is full of practical and step-by-step suggestions to bring greater focus and coherence to your instructional priorities. You can read a brief review of the book, written by Cathy, here.

Homework assignment for first PCN meeting:

  • Bring copies of both Leaders of Their Own Learning and The Internal Coherence Framework with you to the meeting.
  • Scan chapters 3-4 in the Internal Coherence Framework, paying particular attention to the following excerpts:

-Scenario, pp. 37-39
-Public learning, p. 38-43
-Scenario (continued), pp. 55-56
-For chapter 4, new scenario, pp. 59-60
-The Instructional Core, pp. 60-66
-Talking about the Instructional Core, pp 75-76

  • Be prepared to share a “success story” related to your use of student-engaged assessment. This can be an anecdote, some data, or student work that demonstrated progress.
