Schedule for January 2 Professional Development Day

Here is the schedule for our January 2 Professional Development Day.

Elementary Schools
8:00-10:30 Math Workshop for Grades K-3 (Meet at R.L. Young Auditorium). All teachers in K-2 from the five elementary schools are to attend.
Agatha Kent will conduct a workshop on Saxon Math. After having taught Saxon Math herself, she has worked as a consultant for Saxon the past several years. She travels all over the U.S. conducting similar workshops. Now that we have been using the program for several years, this workshop provides an opportunity to clarify small points and ensure that we are using the program to its fullest extent.

12:30-3:00 Math Workshop for Grades 4-6 (Meet at R.L. Young Auditorium) All teachers in K-2 from the five elementary schools are to attend.
Read the above entry for a description of this workshop conducted by Agatha Kent.

8:00-11:00 Makes Sense Strategies Workshop for Grades 3-6 (Meet at THS Career Tech Building Room 907)
Theresa Farmer is a former Alabama State Teacher of the Year and currently works for the Alabama State Department of Education. Her workshop will be on “Makes Sense Strategies.” This CD-ROM has been revamped and improved since it first came out several years ago. For those who have a digital whiteboard, a SchoolPad, or even a projector attached to a computer, the Makes Sense Strategies contains numerous graphic organizers.

Each elementary principal has been asked to select 5 teachers to attend this workshop. Those 5 can then share what they learned with the remainder of their faculties.

The remainder of the day will be reserved for any activities your principal has planned at your local school.

Zora Ellis
Morning Activities-Mr. Bailey will give you instructions on activities for the morning.

12:00-3:00 Makes Sense Strategies Workshop for Grades 7-8 (Meet at THS Career Tech Building Room 907)

Teachers New to the System this Year
10:30-12:00 Meet at R.L. Young Auditorium.
Ginger Paris will conduct this follow-up from our opening of school session. Please bring with you the “Positive Behavior Supports” critical questions responses and assessment pages. These were given out a new-teacher orientation. If you have lost your material, check first with another teacher and borrow theirs. I will collect your responses and mail them to Montgomery.

Special Education Teachers from All Schools
1:00-3:00 Meet in Debbie Peters’ Room (910).
Our focus will be on monitoring and various aspects of SETS.

How will all of this work with PDWeb?
You will automatically be signed up for the workshops listed above on PDWeb. Be sure to sign the sign-in sheets. If for some reason you do not find your name on the sheet, add it at the bottom. After the workshops are over, you will receive an e-mail asking you to do a short evaluation regarding either that workshop or other aspects of professional development. Once you have completed that evaluation, you will automatically receive credit for the workshop.
