College Night at Joseph Case High School
In-Service Day for Teachers: October 6
Some intended outcomes from the morning include:
- General ed teachers and guidance counselors will work by department on best practices in the delivery of curriculum and new interdisciplinary opportunities
- All special education teachers (including in CACE and ARCH) and school adjustment counselors will be at Central Office with Mrs. Garell
- EverFi will conduct financial literacy training to identified teachers in this grade 11/12 pilot program
- Departments will have the option of attending an overview of Flipgrid. Flipgrid is a website that allows teachers to create "grids" of short discussion-style questions that students respond to through recorded videos. Each grid is effectively a message board where teachers can pose a question and their students can post 90-second video responses that appear in a tiled "grid" display.
