I haven't got a ton of time to write today, but I wanted to share this fantastic Bob Eaker bit on the importance of clarifying essential objectives with you.
In it, Bob argues that:
How hard is your professional learning team "grinding?" Are you determined to make manageable sets of essential outcomes sharper and sharper in the minds of your school's important stakeholders?
Have you made that kind of explication a priority?
If not, why not?
