Middle School PD in Action

See what we have been up to since last PD

Our PD

Our PD focused around our Ipad implementation since our building is now fully one to one. We had four break out sessions based on the needs survey of our staff which included: management, assessment, work flow, and extending our usage for those teacher that are comfortable with the use of them.

Mrs. Staponski used some peer feedback techniques in her classroom this week!

Kagan has some great cooperative tools to use with students in the classroom. Mrs. Staponski used the activity showdown with her students this week! Both students solve the problem independently and then they show each other their answers when they yell, "showdown". They either celebrate or coach one another.

Mrs. Staponski said, "I tried the showdown activity in math. It worked really good with most of my classes. The students we really into helping each other understand."
