Professional Development in Action

It's kind of funny that we are trying to share with you a classroom in action because we realize that we are also trying to share with you "PD in action." For most of the month of April, many teachers from our board/district have been invited to visit our demonstration classroom. We've been working on a 'Teacher Learning and Leadership Program (TLLP) from the Ontario Ministry of Education, that is a project-based professional learning opportunity for experienced classroom teachers. For this project, Pete and I have been investigating and researching inquiry-based learning and teaching. We also included, through our budget, release days, that provided, plan, to build our knowledge and to share our classroom with teachers and colleagues from across the board/district. The classroom visits have been very rewarding. Many teachers have claimed that visiting our project was the "best PD they have ever attended." Yeah!
