Our Classroom Staff Keeps Learning & Innovating
Posted 09/19/2014 01:00PM

On Thursday, we held our first Curriculum Group meetings of the school year. It is a late start for students so that our classroom staff can work together on many aspects of classroom learning.

Licensed Staff, Early Learning Center Educators, and Instructional Administrators met in their assigned curriculum and professional groups such as art, science or math.

According to Dr. Jon Voss, Director of Teaching and Learning, this year's curriculum groups will have 3 parts to their meetings, and the other professional groups will have a 2-part meeting (omitting #1 below):
1. Professional Learning: Presentation by a Reading specialist on the background and resources for the district's initiatives in literacy and learning intentions.
2. Peer Review and Evaluation: Presentation by a Peer Coach on the background and process for peer review this year.
3. Curriculum improvement: Continuing the work of your group to share resources and collaborate on curriculum or other resource needs through the Curriculum Hub. We will ask that each group review and update their outcomes for the year.

Our education assistants participated in a workshop presented by Nancy Riestenberg, from the Minnesota Department of Education. She is School Climate Specialist and talked with Education Assistants about the effects of maltreatment on the brain during stages of development. She also identified practices in the classroom; hallway and office that help promote resilience in students.

Great sessions everyone!
