There will be four workshops, each running 45 minutes. Participants will rotate through each workshop and will have collaboration time at the end of the day for follow-up questions and implementation of what was learned.

Participants will volunteer ahead of time to “lead” one of the four workshops.

Workshops will run much like a Socratic seminar in that participant leaders will facilitate the discussion and keep it on track.

A shared Google folder will be used to organize documents that everyone has submitted to share with the group.

Workshops being offered:

  • Writing Curriculum in the FCS classroom
  • Performance Assessments, Student-Centered Learning & Portfolios
  • SGOs and Monitoring Student Progress using Rubrics
  • Nearpod, Peardeck and other apps that work in the FCS classroom
