A1 support T trying different things in their classroom - taking risks, ask to watch. Maybe it will be phenomenal, maybe not, but let's keep trying -- fun for T, S, and me too! Makes class exciting and #kidsdeserveit#ohedchat
A2 Just today I watched an awesome tweet of a photosynthesis Readers Theater in @VBrockmeier class. Or, seeing @MHOLT7872 singing/rapping about solving equations with students and more. May also be a T going out on a limb that's new to them even if not new to others #ohedchat
I think that my hang ups and concerns about "getting it right" will probably be just that -- my hang ups and concerns. My guess is that kids will identify the same problem areas that Staff will, however, they'll prob provide diff ideas for solving the problems #ohedchat
#ohedchat A3 We have moved to bringing in primary source speakers in our SS classes. It had engaged our Ss in learning. We continue to build are list. Started in our 1980s class. Here are some of our speakers.
A3 Organizing teacher choice PD sessions for 4 MS in our district. Ask for their passions to teach about and what they want to learn. End up with over 30 choice sessions and 37 presenters. Just like experts in our #isdms schools we also have experts in our classrooms #ohedchat
A4 I've given a couple teacher examples (and only a couple) that I see regularly at our school. However, I think the how it happens, most frequently, comes from TRUE collaboration -- working with another to develop and build lessons or learning experiences for our S #ohedchat
A5 Some people are more comfortable trying something new after hearing from their colleagues about their successes with something new. PD can provide a wonderful opportunity for Ts to share their innovative stories and to inspire others #ohedchat
We are just getting ready to wrap up our first book study twitter chat. Completely voluntary and we've had over 30 chatters each night and it has been INCREDIBLE! Can't wait for our next one to start in a few weeks #TeacherMyth#growingpanthers#ohedchat
