Many of you were at the fabulous MainePSP Summit held a few weekends back. As always, thank you for being in this partnership. I had a great time, and hope you enjoyed it, as well. For those who didn’t attend, maybe next year! A special thanks to those who spoke on panels and had their students present work!
This Thursday evening, May 31, we’ll have a collaborative meeting at the UTC in Bangor. You’re all invited – teachers get a stipend of $50, and everyone gets dinner… Join us at 5:30!
This week’s activity will deal with the idea of graphing information, universal gravitation, and ways in which we can use each other’s materials in our classrooms. We’re taking a SEPUP activity, looking at the ideas involved in completing it successfully, and hopefully looking at student work, as well. These materials are part of SEPUP, but some PBIS teachers have used them, as well. This gives us a chance to talk about how and why we might borrow ideas and materials from each other. As usual, we’re looking to just simply spend time together, share ideas about how to teach better, understand the materials we have, talk about the science involved, engage in inquiry about the science as well as about teaching, and have a good time.
Please join us on Thursday! Hope to see you soon, for this last collaborative of the 2011-2012 academic year.
