SLOs and R.S.V.P.

February 7, 2016

Student Learning Objectives

The February Online R.S.V.P. ME meeting will take a look at SLOs (Student Learning Objectives). R.S.V.P. is an online discussion held throughout the school year to provide you with the opportunity to learn about specific topics that impact teaching and learning. Facilitator of R.S.V.P. ME is Lisa Ingraham, elementary art teacher at Madison Elementary School in M.S.A.D. #59, invites you to participate in the SLO discussion. Lisa’s district is in their second year of piloting SLOs with students. Lisa is still tweaking them for her art room and her challenge is finding a way to seamlessly integrate them into programming without interrupting the regularly scheduled curriculum.

Please join us the R.S.V.P. ME meeting on Tuesday, February 9, 3:30 to 5:00 PM for a roundtable discussion of SLOs. Since each school district in Maine is at a different point in overhauling their teacher evaluation systems, including the use of SLOs, you’ll be able to learn what is happening in art rooms across the state, from each other!

To join the meeting please email Lisa at She will send you a link to the Zoom Video Conference. If you have a suggestion for a future topic please contact Lisa. And be sure and consider sharing your own experience with other Maine art educators!
