Pizza & PD

Timely, after school sessions for professional learning

New Professional Learning Series!

What IS Pizza & PD?

Born out of necessity, our new Pizza & PD series consists of 2-hour sessions focused on micro-learning that is both timely and useful to current issues facing educators. Recognizing that right now subs are in high-demand and your time in the classroom is more priceless than ever, we have developed these sessions to be informative as well as engaging.


Each session will be conducted in a more casual fashion--recognizing social distancing requirements, where through collaborative structures, participants will receive not only ideas and resources that can be used the next day (in most cases), but all of this will happen while participants enjoy their own personal pan pizza.


Since these sessions are designed to be responsive, if you find we are not offering a topic you feel would be beneficial, please reach out. You can also submit survey responses which will help us in identifying topics that would be helpful. (Educator Check-in Survey)

Series Overview & Essential Information

Covid-19 Guidelines for All Face-2-Face Professional Learning Opportunities at the MCCESC

While everyone is welcome to have their own opinion of mask mandates, the ESC is following recommendations and guidelines published by the CDC and local health officials. As these recommended guidelines change, so too will our policies and procedures for providing Professional Learning Opportunities. If there is a change in a PLO, and you're registered for it, you will be notified of that change ASAP.


Below I have included a handout of helpful precautions as well as some of the new protocols for attending PLO events at the ESC. If you have any questions, please contact James Cutlip, james.cutlip@mccesc.org, or 937-484-1557, ext. 102

Essential Details

Dates:


November 10, 2020 - Pizza & PD: Virtual Instruction for Administrators

This session has been designed for school administrators. What does best practice say should be expected of teachers? Virtual Instruction Professional Learning is saturating the PD landscape, but what we are finding is that without sufficient administrator support, teachers are not able to implement what research calls "Best Practice." Participants will investigate best practice and how best to implement best practices to support their teachers in this new "normal."


November 12, 2020 - Pizza & PD: Using Google Slides for Remote Teaching

In this session we will focus on alternate ways to utilize Google Slides for remote teaching. The key here is Google Slides is far more than a presentation.


November 17, 2020 (London location) - Pizza & PD: Blended Learning Models

Participants will focus on how to prepare their lessons for blended learning, using three different frameworks for easy “plug n’ play” planning.


December 2, 2020 (London location) - Pizza & PD: OTES 2.0 Strategies

Between the changes in teacher evaluation and the lack of state tests to incorporate into our instructional decision-making, it can seem nigh impossible to address what the OTES 2.0 framework calls "High Quality Student Data" (HQSD). Additionally, the rubric itself seems designed to create insurmountable expectations for educators already doing too much. How do you manage to teach virtually and demonstrate your "Accomplished" teaching skills? Join us for this very informative and highly relevant session!

February 9, 2021 - Pizza & PD: Virtual Co-Teaching

This deep-dive virtual workshop will energize your co-teaching and set you up for success in a school year where the unknowns are as endless as the yellowbrick road. Consider the WHY, the WHAT, and the HOW of collaborative planning, teaching, assessing, and reflecting.


February 18, 2021 - Pizza & PD: Discourse with a focus on TalkMoves

Incorporate discourse into the classroom to allow students to deepen their understanding. Participants will learn how to facilitate discourse using current curriculum and additional online resources. Using productive Talk Moves can enhance class discussions and lead to high quality discussions that engage all learners and further student understanding of the material.


March 9, 2021 - Pizza & PD: High-Impact ELA Strategies

It does not matter the grade level, if you take the time to learn research-based instructional strategies, implement them with fidelity, and reflect on areas of improvement for next time, your students will benefit from your hard work.
