Planning to be Excellent! Wednesdays 4:30-5:30

Chat and Chew

Over the next few Wednesdays, we'll craft an exciting plan for teaching and learning. The end result will be a clear picture of an exemplary BA ELAR graduate and a departmental handbook to guide our practice. This teamwork will be the foundation for 2014-2015... and pizza will be provided.

Every Wednesday from 4:30-5:30 in Room 225

Day One: Chalk Talk and "Plussing" - Brainstorming an Exemplar Graduate and Our Role

Day Two: "Garage Sale" - What Goes, Stays, and is Needed? (Instructional Handbook)

Day Three: "Bring Your Best" - Examination of Best Practices

Day Four: "Transformers, Assemble" - Putting the Pieces Together

Day Five: "Dare to Dream" - Designing the "Dream" Classroom

Day Six: "Ahhh...Summer" - PD, Next Steps, and Material Acquisition for the Summer


Let's Get Excited About the Future of BA ELAR
