I am overjoyed to see how an assistant principals and team of teachers met the previous week to coordinate PD sessions for lead teachers to train instructors new to McKee. It is a joy for a principal to see the further development of teacher efficacy.
Day 1 of AVID Training at McKee shared group work strategies such as marking the text, Cornell Notes, & Cornell Way at @McKeeCTHS.
The sessions were facilitated by lead teachers. Check out: http://tinyurl.com/yc7ebqmj
On Day 2 - dived into what implementing AVID techniques would look like in different subject area classrooms.
Teachers from the Science Department shared how they will organize and implement the interactive notebook and address improving the ability of students understanding what a question is asking by deconstructing the prompt.
The summary for Day 2 involved creating of charting and illustrating their understandings of the strategies received from the day's professional development.
