Cohort Syllabus

This session will focus on planning for the year to come before it begins. What professional development opportunities proved the most helpful? Where might those ideas, resources, and activities land in your classroom or year? What planning tools might help capture these projects? What kinds of reasonable goals, tweaks, and additions might we consider making for the coming year? What do we want to change about our classroom procedures that will make the year smoother from the onset? We will take time to consider these questions, offer examples, and begin planning for the year to come.

Enjoy the Advent and Christmas season with your families.
