Tips, Tricks, & Good News at Schoolcraft CS V58

Now We're Rolling Edition

So we are heading into our 2nd week of school huh? Do you have a good idea of who's in your classes and are starting to formulate what they need? In this issue, we'll hit on some early tips and tricks to try out something new while the iron is still hot! Also, you'll find out the new "20 minute bytes of learning" program we're starting!

PD on Your Time - "20 Minute Bytes of Learning"

As your teaching and learning coach, I (Matt McCullough) want to best accommodate our learning and support on your time. This year instead of only before/after school PD we are going to try "20-Minute Bytes of Learning".

Each month there will be 2-3 different bytes you can order up by booking me (or sometimes your peers in the future) at the buttons below and listing the best time for me to support you and your students. Whether it be at your PLC late starts, lunch, planning, before/after school, during a class to model or any other time, if it is available on the calendar on the end of the button, it is yours!

Never hesitate to ask for additional topics or ideas but those listed below are current according to teacher requests and trends in teaching and learning. Once clicking the button you will be prompted for a day/time and location of the PD as well as a reminder of the topic you selected. Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
