Making Sense of the Principles: A Portfolio from Greenfield Center School
Baker, Laura
Horace, v23 n3 Fall 2007
When the author and her colleagues work on goal setting at Greenfield Center School (GCS), they have a practice of showing what the relationships, interaction, teaching practices, and evidence of learning look and sound like. Making theory more concrete helps them all to envision the work ahead. In 2006, a group of elementary level Essential school educators developed a Statement of Values about their work. This statement, based upon the CES Common Principles, is guiding their work at GCS, and this article is the start of a school portfolio documenting the implementation of these values. GCS teachers and their kindergarten through eighth grade students offer this evidence as a way to further the conversation of what teaching, learning, community, and life can be at CES elementary schools.
