After surveying out teachers about the type of PD they’d like during the summer, we created the Technology Content Area Academies in response to the almost unanimous request for content area specific training. Teachers came for a 6 hour workshop on their content area…with examples specifically addressing the grade levels of the teachers in attendance.
The Electives Academy was a real challenge as we had SO MANY different types of electives to work with. We clustered our teachers by Fine Arts, CTE, Health and PE, ESL and Foreign Language, and a couple of other small groups…to try to be sure that we could manage the presentations…and it worked out really well!
I feel terrible that we didn’t take photos…but it was pretty fast paced and we were really rockin’ to keep up!
Here’s some fun from the secondary Fine Arts group..
