This professional development will walk a school through how to implement 21st Century Skills in their school from a SCHOOL and CLASSROOM level.
The group will work through the school implementation process and set a timeline for implementation, and then based on that timeline, the classroom teachers will plan their implementation.
Please note - the key to successful implementation is NOT time intensive - the key is introducing and then fully implementing the language and skills into your DAILY ROUTINES and classroom life. Once the skills are introduced it should become part of your day and not require set time - it will be part of everything you do!
The following infographic outlines the process a school can take when establishing a program for 21st century skill development.
In this session, we explore four different choice menus you can do in your online classroom. These menus range from closed / teacher-centered to open / student-centered. I'll walk you step-by-step through each type of choice menu so that you can craft a practical choice menu for your students.
Modules for teachers include:
*Overview & Syllabus
*Data Informed Instruction
*Summative Classroom Assessment
*Putting the Pieces Together
Classroom Assessment in a Remote Learning Environment
The following is a presentation and supporting materials that can be used with a staff to discuss co-teaching implementation. This presentation was originally used with School Based Administrators at Sun West. If you have any questions or require more information contact Melissa, Carole or Kelli.
This workshop looks at collective responsibility and consensus and how to develop it in your school to support the creation of a positive school culture.
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.

Participants will be invited to share their own experiences with mentorship in their schools and classrooms.
