Activity: A Change in Your Community



Draft a plan to change something in your classroom. This could be as simple as a shift in the way you speak to your students or it could be introducing growth mindset work as a concept to your class. It even could be facilitating a survey on how belongingness is felt within your classroom.

As you draft your plan, think about how you will measure the outcomes of the proposed change. Will you give exit cards to your students to write their ideas before they leave class? Will you conduct a straw poll? Whatever you use to measure the outcomes of your change idea, think about measuring it in some way.

The final submission should include a description of the problem you are addressing within your learning environment (100-300 words) along with an outline for a “put-it-into-action” plan to measure/assess the change after you have introduced it (100-300 words).


Feedback (Optional)

You can grade your assignment yourself, or have a willing peer take a look. Grade your assignment based on the answer to these questions:
  • Was a “put-it-into” action plan, 100-300 words, submitted that describes how the learner is going to implement and measure the change within their learning environment?
  • Was a 100-300 word description of the problem to be addressed included in the entry?
