Why No School Today? Professional Development and My Child’s Classroom
Have you ever wondered why there needs to be professional development days for teachers during the school year? It is important that teachers, like any other professionals, keep abreast of new developments in education, such as the revised curriculum. Since 1972 there have been days set aside in the school year to allow for teachers to get together to learn, much the same as the students in their classrooms do. This workshop examines some of the many ways that teachers engage in professional development, and how this translates to improved learning conditions in classrooms. Participants will also have the chance to ask questions about teacher professional development and how it works in their school district.
