Day 122 (of 188) The best pro-d – in schools
For the second time in as many months I had the opportunity to take in some of the best professional development: schools in action.
Last month I ‘popped in’ on a few of my #PLN while on my way to a meeting on the coast. It was fantastic to see 15 minute snippets of some amazing schools in action – without any pre-knowledge that I was coming, just ‘a moment of the day’.
Today was even better – an extended time with some of my staff to visit another #83learns school and explore their literacy intervention program. But for the school, it was ‘just anger day’. Kids were doing what they normally did, as did the teachers and the CEAs and the principal and….everyone.
We had a chance to see some great reading recovery/intervention strategies roll out – not in theory, but in practice.
Thinking a lot more about using a future pro-d day to go to another school district that is in-session that day to see what great things they are doing and how it might enhance our own learning community!
