TTT with ASD
On November 4, all QA teachers attended the annual pre-NESA Teachers Teaching Teachers event. ASD and QA teachers provided a wide mix of PD sessions, with something to meet all interests. Many teachers were quite pleased with the offerings, and the opportunity to expand their knowledge, but there was one difficulty. Since each session was offered only once, and since space in each was limited, some teachers were unable to attend the sessions they most wanted. We'll work on a solution for this next year, when hopefully QA will be hosting the event.
Instructional Strategies PD for Arabic and Islamic Studies Teachers
On October 26, 27 and 28, all QA's Arabic and Islamic Studies teachers participated in a workshop on instructional strategies. An excellent trainer, Hanadi Al Dayyeh, came in from Lebanon to lead three days of learning. The group worked in depth with the different strands of language: speaking, listening, reading and writing, and expanded their knowledge of strategies for helping students learn. Hanadi is due to return in November for a three-day workshop on writing and using a standards-based curriculum.
On September 18, 19 and 20, a committed group of QA educators gave up their weekend and participated in Tribes training, which focuses on improving community and addressing students' affective needs in order to improve student learning.
Supporting documents, Chad's excellent notes, and a plethora of pictures are contained in the zipped folder here. (I have taken them off the H drive to save server space.)
