Week of December 8-12 PLC Meetings

Unless noted above in the schedule, we do not have a specific agenda for this week. Please come to your meeting prepared to discuss whatever topics your team sees necessary.

We probably need to take a moment to look over our unit planner(s) and scope and sequence for the 3rd six weeks and make sure we are on track. Please make sure you have shared with me your team's curriculum documents for this six weeks.

Thanks for all you do!

Downloading Videos from the Web

Based on the technology survey we conducted several weeks ago, many teachers wanted to know how to download videos from the web so that you do not have to stream them. Stacey made a video explaining the process on a bonus installment of Cole's Tech Tips. Please let Stacey know if you have any questions.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you. I am here for you!
