Setting the Agenda

Purpose of this Tool: This tool will help you and your colleagues to establish an agenda for your learning.

How to Use this Tool: This tool has two parts. Individuals should complete the Mentor Development Summary, before the first meeting of the study group. At the meeting, mentor teachers share their Summaries with the study group.  The group then identifies the common areas for growth on which to focus the group's learning.  The Summaries also allow the group to identify the funds of knowledge that individuals bring with them and that can be tapped for the group's learning.  The group then completes Setting the Agenda Grid, as a way to plan for and organize your learning.
