Homer School District 33C teachers and staff are taking advantage of the quiet summer months to brush up on new teaching methods and expand their professional portfolios.
Throughout the summer, the district is offering a series of staff development opportunities, including workshops on:
- Visible Learning
- Top Tech Tools for Instruction and Assessment
- Google Docs and Drive
- Digital Feedback Tools
- IPEVO Interactive Whiteboard System
- Helping All Students Succeed with Informational Text
- Co-Writer Universal
“Homer 33C strongly believes that professional development in an educational environment increases the effectiveness of all who are engaged in the teaching and learning process,” said Kathleen Robinson, assistant superintendent for instruction.
Mike Szopinski reviews Visible Learning with teachers on June 28.
Nearly 400 teachers and staff members signed up for the 16 Summer Institute workshops, which began June 8 and conclude Aug. 9.
Each workshop is led by district employees and held at Young, Schilling and Hadley schools.
