Are You On Twitter?

Below is a short clip about how to make a connection with other educators around the world. At the beginning of the year, I referenced taking risks or trying something new. One thing I suggest with enthusiasm is joining Twitter. The platform allows a user to peek inside other schools, classrooms, share ideas, tap into new resources.

If you are already on Twitter, check out some of the hashtags for education.

Observation Information

Please bring a lesson plan to your pre-conference meeting. During the meeting we will discuss key components of domains 1-3 from the Danielson Rubric. This rubric may be found in the shared faculty folder under Lesson Planning.

At the post-conference, we will be discussing the component Reflecting on Teaching (4a). Please keep in mind the following three questions:

1. Do you think the lesson was successful? Why?

2. What evidence do you have that students learned what you intended for them to learn?

3. If you had a chance to teach this lesson again to the same group of students, what would you do differently?

Seneca Meadows Landfill Tours

Christine received an invitation to tour the Seneca Meadows Landfill in late spring and wanted to share this opportunity with other teachers. If this type of trip supports a unit or topic and you are interested in taking your class, please see the contact information below. Scholarships are available for transportation costs (bonus!) and they customize the trip for primary students.
