Mini PDs are underway and the outlook is bright! Mini PD's...our version of an Edcamp style professional development! Edcamps are a trendy version of professional development in which teachers are allowed choice and voice, two things that every teacher wants in their own learning. Click here to read about Edcamps and their benefits.
Our first Mini PD on Interactive Notebooks spurred conversation and brought in great reviews on our monthly teacher leadership survey. Interactive Notebooks are a way for students to organize their thoughts and think creatively in one space!
Our second Mini PD was a complete success! 20+ teachers coming together to learn collaboratively with the goal of helping students acheive more success in the area of writing. "The Writing Recipe" Mini PD can be seen in full on our video library.
I will also be adding handouts from both Mini PDs to our Resource page! If you are wanting to know more, reach out to Cass (Writing Recipe), Jennifer or Sara (Interactive Notebooks) or any of the Connectors!
Stay tuned for more Mini PDs throughout the year!
