Professional Development

Monday, October 29th

Join us for two hours of professional development prior to the start of the delayed opening school day. Please see below for the morning's schedule and session choices.


8:00 - Media Center - Welcome, Refreshments

8:20 - Session I: Pear Deck

9:10 - Session II: Choose from several PD options

*** Bring your chromebook to both sessions ***

Session I: Pear Deck (Media Center)

Pear Deck combines the questioning techniques of Verso with the fun, game like questions of Kahoot, to make Google Slideshows interactive. We've purchased the Premium version of this product, and can't wait to show you how to use it to enhance your existing slideshows or to create new ones. Kim will take you through the Pear Deck experience as a student, before showing you how to create your own.

Session II Options:

Google Classroom (Media Center)

Heard a lot about Google Classroom? Wondering what the big deal is? Stop by to see how you can use Classroom with your students. See it in action, ask questions, and try it out for yourself.

Map Data and Reports (Design Center)

This session is for teachers who need some time to analyze MAP test data. Anne will be there to assist you in determining which reports are best for you to use, and to show you how this data can help inform your instruction.

Freckle (Room 318)

New to Freckle ELA this year? Spend some time learning about the ELA or Math programs by watching a short webinar on the Freckle topic of your choice.

Grade Level Articulation (on your own)
