A Moonshot Institute Celebration:

Bringing Standards to Life

May 19, 2016

All Moonshot PD participants joined us for an afternoon of learning, sharing and celebrating the incredible work from this school year! For our final Moonshot Institute of this school year, we gave educators the opportunity to learn from each other through sharing artifacts of learning and teacher led presentations. Kurt Wootton from the ArtsLiteracy Project at Brown and Tina Blythe from Harvard's Project Zero returned to join us and facilitate the experience. We celebrated all the hard work and accomplishments with refreshments.







*All participants were asked to bring an artifact of learning to share. This could be one piece of student work (such as a project or a piece of writing), a photo, a short (less than 1 minute) video on a phone...anything that showcases the PD to Practice journey. 

Guest Presenter: 
Tina Blythe has been a researcher with Harvard University's Project Zero since 1988. She has focused on professional development, teacher inquiry, and collaborative assessment of student work, as well as curriculum and instruction that emphasizes learning for understanding. She is the author of The Teaching for Understanding Guide and Looking Together at Student Work.
Guest Presenter: 
Kurt Wootton is the author of A Reason to Read : Linking Literacy and the Arts; Co-Founder of the Arts Literacy Project at Brown University; and Director of Habla: Center for Language and Culture in Merida, Mexico. He is a leading national 
expert on using multisensory strategies to build literacy.
