June 30, 2015

What's so important about that date? That's when all of your PD hours must be logged and completed. This is a CHANGE from the original date of May 1, 2015.

Remember, you are responsible for 14 hours of PD time.

Your face-to-face hours here at Rossville are available by clicking HERE.

Your Simple K12 hours are logged and checkable, but you are responsible for turning in your certificates of completion and list of webinars to your administrator.

Use the form below to record your PD hours and turn in to your administrator.

Turnitin - Thursday April 23, 3:25-4:25 -- COMPLETED!

We'll have a hands on webinar training from the turnitin staff to learn how to better use this resource! If you're a middle or high school teacher who has your students WRITE, this resource is for you. Join us and learn how to best utilize this resource with your students.

"In this session, school/institution administrators and faculty (teachers/instructors) will have the opportunity to take advantage of a live training session on the use of Turnitin, covering everything from class and assignment set-up through the use of the originality checking and grading tools to evaluate student work. In addition, during the session we will also discuss how Turnitin can be used to support the institution’s academic integrity policies at the classroom or course level. We will also cover strategies for helping students understand how plagiarism can take form or examine the more popular sites that students visit online, and discuss how to use a rubric to help students develop critical awareness of the quality of the sites that they visit.

There will be ample opportunity to ask questions and dive into the full Turnitin feature set. This session will also address the Turnitin touch points in Canvas."
