Collaboratively Looking at Student Work
The process of collaboratively looking at student work is a system of professional inquiry that challenges us to examine our beliefs about what students know and are able to do. It also helps us identify which teaching methods are working most successfully. Along with our colleagues, we can acquire deeper insight into the link between our instruction and each student's learning—and enhance our ability to help every student succeed.
This process allows us to strengthen our connections between students’ learning and what we provide to enhance that learning. While teachers at WWHS and DMS have just begun to engage in the process of LASW, it is just that, a process. It is important to examine student work in depth, with others, and over time so that a culture of drawing conclusions about teaching and learning is based on the evidence found.
