Today is not a “day off” for Sewickley Academy teachers, but rather a chance to collaborate and learn with and from one another. Teachers and administrators sharing expertise and working together toward common goals improve learning for all of our students.
In the morning, teachers will be working in teams to review units of study with the purpose of analyzing assessments, and answering the question, “Does this assessment provide the best evidence of student learning?”
In the afternoon, it’s Teachers Teaching Teachers. Faculty members will present workshops on a variety of topics, including:
- The Magic Circle of the Gamified Classroom
- Flexible Grouping in Math
- The 24-Hour Classroom
- Cross-time Interviews
- Social Media in the Classroom
These workshops offer teachers an opportunity for leadership and allow the rest of us to benefit from their considerable expertise.
We’re looking forward to a great day of professional learning and collaboration! Teachers are Learners, Too.
