    What are your big take-aways from this question?

    What are you hoping to implement now?

    What will you need more time to reflect on prior to implementing?

    My big take-away from this was the 3 principles from Switch. The elephant, the rider, and the path. That makes a lot of sense and something that my admin and I will have to take into account when trying to “steer” our department somewhere that we want to go. Further, Kyle’s point about what different colleagues think the reason for assessment is. That’s something that we’ve never really talked about as a PLC or department, but something that I think would be valuable to have a conversation about.

      We love the rider, elephant and path idea as well. It is so helpful to remind ourselves of why we get stuck in so many ruts in education (and life). What is the elephant wanting? What is blocking the path? If we can zoom out and handle those pieces, change becomes more attainable.

    The bike rider is a wonderful analogy of what I hope to accomplish in my class.
