Check out this week's entry: The H Word. "Homework"
If you didn't have a chance yet to watch the #MURSDLeads session from last week with Todd Nesloney, the author of KidsDeserveIt, you definitely should. He was incredibly dynamic and shared many of his thoughts on how to bring about positive school environments. Here is a link to the discussion.
Here is a link to his website and latest blog entry: We Show Up
Our district has a partnership with the organization Primary Source, which allows for some designated spots in their courses and workshops. Some of the fall courses begin this week, but there are workshops and courses later in the year. If you are interested in participating in one of the courses or workshops, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the course, why you think it would be beneficial for the classes you teach, and if you have participated in a Primary Source workshop last year.
Additionally, because registration is virtually unlimited for their webinars, teachers can register for those sessions directly. Once again this year they are offering some of our webinars in series so that teachers who participate in multiple sessions can earn PDPs. Please take a look at: https://www.primarysource.org/for-teachers/webinars. Then you can follow the instructions for registering through their online form.
