Dear Science APs and Lead Teachers,
Please join us tomorrow, November 10th, 2016 from 12pm to 3 pm for the third monthly meeting of our yearlong series, during which we will continue to explore instructional leadership, as well as rigorous and engaging instruction in our schools. Our meeting will take place at Brooklyn Technical High School, rm E120.
Attached you will find a copy of Chapter 17 from The Skillful Teacher, as well as a reading guide for it. Please read the chapter and annotate it. I am looking forward to the discussion we will have about this content. Feel free to use the included reading guide as a tool to organize your notes and thoughts on the topic and bring with you to the meeting. Due to time constraints, you will only have 10 minutes to review the information in the chapter during the meeting.
You may find it useful to bring the folders that were given out in September, as well as the materials from October, in case you want to refer back to them.
For this meeting, please bring 4 copies of your best introductory lesson for the one of the following units below. These will be reviewed for home work by each group member and commented on during future meetings.
We hope that upon your return to school, the information you receive will be turn-keyed to your department/grade teams during professional development or common planning meetings.
We cannot wait to continue our work together and hear what has been going on in your departments since we last saw each other!
A sincere thank you to Principal Asher for continuing to host us!
