Activity: Assess Your Own Setting



Using the theory and concepts you learned in this email’s materials, assess where you see the learning community is at your school or educational setting. Capture an artifact (e.g. interview with a student/faculty member, photograph of student work, feedback to a student, etc) that will help to present this finding.

Along with your artifact, prepare a written reflection (100-300 words) that describes why you chose the artifact to represent the current state of Learning Mindsets & Skills within your community. At the conclusion of your reflection, post a “wondering” about avenues for Learning Mindsets & Skills improvement that may be possible within your community.

  • Was a reflection (100-300 words) submitted along with the artifact?
  • Did the reflection describe how the artifact submitted was indicative of Learning Mindsets & Skills within a learning environment?
