Our work continues here to implement our new expanded student reporting project, the essential goals for Gregorians, or the “egg.”   The report card piece has been prepared and distributed to parents and teachers and students; the new poster appears on every classroom wall now.    This week we are working to provide more information by offering some color to the framework by offering short descriptions of what each “essential goal” might look like in the classroom when performed by our students.    Note: We will not be evaluating students on each of the descriptions (in italics); the italicized descriptions will not appear on the report card format itself, which is only the much simplified framework.  But the italicized pieces are intended to offer some greater illumination of what we mean for each criterium.
