Spotlight on Professional Learning
What awesome things are going on at Davis?
Interactive Word Walls are wonderful tools in your classroom. Research them for yourself or search Science Toolkit on Facebook. There are tons of examples and information. You could also ask our very own Sarah Woods. She has been using those in her classroom, and they are great.
In 5th grade, students make 3D timelines and board games to showcase their knowledge of the American Revolution. They are also participating in Genius Hour. I will get some pictures and post them next time. They are really cool. Its amazing what the students will do when they have the freedom to choose their output.
Teachers-I know you have come across great articles and different professional learning things. If it is amazing, send it to me so I can share it with the teachers. Thank you
