More planning time required if Day 9 is to be driven by inquiry
projects instead of activity-based.
Tweaks needed for morning break time and dismissal procedure.
The Day 9 prototype was continuously assessed and developed from its
creation through three iterations over the course of a year. The Day 9
Planning Team gathered feedback from Day 9 Instructors and ran the
same reflection process for each iteration of the Day 9 Prototype.
Explore, Prototype, Transform
The Day 9 Planning Team gathered, reflected on, and acted on the data
feedback collected during each iteration of the Day 9 prototype. The
reflections, recommendations, and actions are based on data and
feedback gathered from students, teachers, teaching assistants, and key
support personnel from the Technology and R&D department.
Day 9 Instructors were surveyed and asked to respond to the following
reflection prompts after each Day 9 Iteration:
An anecdote I'd like to Share, or What I'd tell a colleague about
What went well?
What would you change or add next time?
Anything else you'd like to share?
From these questions a total of 49 responses from the three iterations of
Day 9 were analyzed according to mentions of:
Teaching multi-age groups
Student excitement and enthusiasm
