This is a resource for adminstrators or PeBL mentors to help set goals with their staff for their school. Beginning with a look into the Continuum of Learning and moving into the idea of Collective Responsibility, staff will be given a chance to decide where they see their school and where they want to go next. This workshop works best in small, safe groups. The adminstrator or PeBL mentor will compile the results of the workshops and present to the staff to demonstrate common threads and related action items to work toward their goals for their school.
Agenda, PowerPoint, personal booklet, and group booklet are attached.

"All types of educators are bound to find something of use on KQED Education. Browse the classroom resources for access to high-quality videos, lesson plans, media creation ideas, and other standards-aligned content. Or read stories written and shared by other educators, and get inspiration and ideas for your classroom. Activities focus on creative use and analysis of media. For example, one teacher-created post describes how she used memes to teach media literacy. Another wrote about having students share their culture through media creation. While the site contains a mix of structured plans and ideas, it's easy to find activities that inspire forward-thinking instruction and encourage the development of a 21st century learning environment.
Check out the free professional development (PD) offerings as well: Teachers can earn certification as a PBS Media Literacy Educator by completing eight of the available modules. The site's pages are densely populated with activities, links to more KQED resources, and partner sites, but if you're willing to spend some time looking around, you'll find lots of high-quality materials."
