When going through Kelli’s photos of her SLCs, I was blown away by the richness of the experiences that were being had by the students and parents of her class. Even though these are “silent” photographs, each picture definitely “tells a thousand words”. The language, both English and mother-tongue, must have been so rich in that room!

One of the main things we can learn from this set of photos is the immeasurable value of taking photos as a way of gathering assessment data. Kelli learned a lot about her students by watching them so closely through the lens of the camera. She knew what she was hoping to see and then captured it visually.

Check out the parents who built a puppet theatre from scratch – priceless!

What were the highlights of your SLCs?

This is an excellent little video captured purely by chance while walking around classrooms. These kids really impressed me with their explanations and the way they were engaging with the text in a really meaningful way. I also really liked the fact that they were going to demonstrate these skills and habits to their parents in the Student Led Conferences on Monday.
