Today was the second professional learning session focused on bridging the Instructional Shifts of the CCSS and Social Emotional Learning at Inspire Academy. Teachers gathered in the afternoon to reflect on the existing integration of SEL in their core classes, review three new activators (turn and talk, idea wave, and popcorn share), and plan for the implementation of these activators in their classes. Materials for the session include the deck in Keynote and PDF.
Options Area science educators gathered this morning for their first session of 'Focusing on the Core for All' , the Options NVACS professional learning cycle for the 2015-2016 school year. This group includes teachers from Options Area schools, Implementation Specialists from MTSS and Student Support Services departments, Student Support Services area administrators, and Options Area school site principals, each of whom has chosen a content focus for the year (English Language Arts, History-Social Studies, Science, or Mathematics). The professional learning cycle for this year builds on that of past years (namely, the High School Core Task Project and Shifting Instruction to the Core ) and is focused on supporting teachers, implementation specialists, and administrators in the Options Area to expand and deepen alignment of instruction, materials, and programs Common Core Standards and Instructional Shifts so that all students are prepared for college and career.
