The best time to start anything was 20 years ago. The second best time to start is now.
So let’s get the #822Chat started.
822 Chat Format
The chat will always be 8 minutes. You’re busy. You deserve a healthy work/life balance, so 8 minutes each week is plenty to network, engage, and share.
Network. At (CST, Saturdays) and again (CST, Tuesdays) we’ll start a meet and greet. Say hello and add a follow on Twitter.
Q1 Discuss. At 8:22am/pm the first question is posted. The first question is a fresh question each week (see below).
Q2 Share. At /pm the second question is posted. This question is always the same: What are you currently creating, working on, or learning?
Of course, don’t forget the hashtag with your tweets: #822chat and respond to the questions with A1 or A2 for your answers.
Here are the questions for the rest of 2018.
November 2018 will focus on the topic of expectations. Expectations for student success, school-wide efficacy, high expectations in action, and expectations for leadership.
November 10 and 13:
What have you found to be the most effective ways to communicate high expectations in your school?
November 17 and 20: What do you believe are “high expectations” for school leadership?
November 24 and 27: How do you know when you see high expectations in action in a classroom?
We’ll wrap 2018 up with a focus on finding gifts on your campus.
December 1 and 4: How do you celebrate the strengths of your team or your teachers?
December 8 and 11: How do you make celebration a habit on your campus?
December 15 and 18: How could you increase the ability of teams to celebrate each other’s successes in student growth?
Break until 2019.
