Reaping the benefits and Webinars

I feel I am beginning to reap the benefits of of our newly aligned curriculum. Our district spent HOURS reading, researching, and aligning our Massachusetts standards to the CCSS. As a member of one of the committees, it is rewarding to see it in practice. While I cannot speak for all, and I am sure there will be tweaking and refinements as the units progress, it is a good feeling to have this work accomplished.

Professional development opportunities are all around, and many of them are free! ¬†Webinars hosted by numerous organizations seem prevalent lately. I registered for a problem-based learning webinar in October. After a conversation with a colleague, I’m anxious to get some direct knowledge on this topic and what better way than a webinar!

Stay active and keep learning.
