    Big takeaway for me is we are trying to teach students how to learn (be life-long learners) and how to think. The idea of not having the perfect plan goes along with we don’t need to show specifically how to do every single granular learning target. Students who can model and think will be able to reason through an unfamiliar situation. That is what is most exciting to me.

    Additionally, the idea of the portfolio day is asking students to be reflective and go back over the learning targets to decide which ones they should focus on this week. It models that learning is a continuum – not a destination. There is always more we can learn.

    Thanks again for posting this Q&A!
