During this week, we had the opportunity to read other colleague’s Action Plans. While it was both informative, it was a time for us to choose to read deeply and assist aother colleagues in their plan. I found I was at times hesitant to recommend or question someone’s plan. Then, at other times, it was not difficult.
While reflecting on the process, I discovered my own insecurities in my attempting to carrying out my plan. The feedback was slow at first, but after a few days, we all started to send emails inviting others to read our blogs. It was at this time, I became motivated to check and see what others commented on my blog and on others. This week, I realized we were growing into a collaborative group of learners and that we would become stronger as we journeyed through this next year of action research. I am so fortunate to have such GREAT fellow educators in this class and journey with me. I do hope some day I will be able to meet them in person.
Allison’s words of encouragement affirmed my thoughts of the plan. I know they were detailed but it was good to see that the information was considered by others as having the ability to “see each step”. I was glad she saw some duplications in my action plan. I looked as those entries and several times when creating the document and never saw the duplication. I appreciate Allison taking the time to read carefully and show me those entries. I have deleted the duplications with her recommendations.
