Lyons planned a half day for students today to give teachers some PD and planning time. I was tapped to chair a descriptive review of curriculum based on the Prospect model (Prospect Institue is being renamed The Institutes on Descriptive Review as of this year).
The presenter was a middle school art teacher who wanted some feedback on her curriculum and practice. The Prospect descriptive review process provided a sage space for that discussion.
For my part, the shortened format and the fact the attendees were all my colleagues put me at ease. It was a good way to practice chairing a descriptive review.
Although it was severely abridged due to the one hour time frame, the process did lead to some direct and indirect feedback for the presenting teacher.
