September 22 – A Day of High Energy, Inspiration, and Professional Learning

Our instructional team spent the day on Friday talking teaching and learning – on how to make our already highly successful school division an even better place for students, families, and staff.

Dr. John Almarode (James Madison University) helped provide both the foundation and the spark for the day’s events.  Dr. Almarode’s morning keynote address focused on instructional elements that lead to increased student engagement, and he delivered his message by modeling exactly the kind of learning facilitation he espouses for students.

The balance of Friday’s professional day was spent in extended small group workshops with Dr. Almarode, in instructional design training centered around delivery of the new state math standards, and in grade level and department meetings.
