Salisbury Township School District faculty and staff are participating in this year’s Summer Academy. After 115 staff members completed a Needs Assessment in May, over 40 sessions were developed for this summer! Sessions are being offered in a variety of formats by teachers, administrators, and other staff members. Thank you to all of those staff (and community) members who are sharing their knowledge and expertise with us! There are face-to-face, online, and blended learning opportunities. There are professional book studies and hands-on sessions related to Best Practices, Technology, Special Education, and much more! Review the brochure to see this year’s offerings!
Summer Academy 2014 Brochure
Get involved this October with Connected Educators’ Month! Discovery has a full calendar for the month of October. A different opportunity for learning is presented each day. For example, today’s professional development opportunity is a link to Kathy Schrock’s blog for Discovery, Kathy’s Katch. There are also links to Discovery webinars, twitter chat information, learning boards, podcasts, and Google Hangouts. I especially like the blog entitled Spotlight on Strategies (S.O.S.). In S.O.S., Ginny Washburne shares interactive learning strategies. Discovery will also feature boards created in the new Board Builder feature. (On October 12th, they will share 50 ways to use the boards with students! I’m excited to see this one!) All STSD teachers have access to Discovery products. Share your knowledge of Discovery with other teachers to become a DEN Star. Stars receive exciting benefits throughout the year. See your library media teacher for more information!
