In-District PD Opportunity

Summer 2016

FCS Summer PD Option - Attend and/or Present

Summer is coming soon, and this summer, FCS would like to offer 1 to 2 days of in-district professional development sessions. The set-up would be very similar to the PD sessions held last summer for the two weather make-up days (various sessions offered in classrooms at the Tech. & PD Center).

Ideally, if we could get enough interest and enough presenters to have 8-12 sessions, we could host 1-2 days of professional development!

The purpose of this flyer is to provide an OVERVIEW and get feedback on how many faculty would be interested in attending and/or possibly presenting sessions of this kind.

We have been implementing many strategies for student engagement this year! Here are some topics to consider:

Google/Apple Tips

We will have both iPads AND Chromebooks in students' hands next year -- what tips do you want to learn and what might you be able to share with others?

Looking at Student Work

Practical examples of ways teachers & departments can look at student work for more than just grading purposes; i.e. mastery of standards, depth of knowledge, assignment alignment to standards, support for struggling learners, and MORE!

Would you attend? Would you present?

The ideas above are not exhaustive -- we have experts right here in Florence City Schools! What other topics have had an impact on your instruction?
