The January session of the Dearborn Teacher University professional development workshop was spent with our first year professional staff being introduced to the world of summative assessments. The high school staff, led by Dearborn High Coordinators, Christine Rosbury and Laurie Lintner, spent the hour examining the College Board website and the various resources and tools that are available to classroom teachers. Our new teachers also learned about the differences between SAT and PSAT and their subtests.
For our new elementary and middle school professional staff, Duvall principal Bob Attee, provided an engaging session on how to read and understand the information provided on NWEA reports. The participants were instructed on how the MAP and MPG student, class and grade level reports can increase their students’ achievements in the areas of Reading, Math, Language Usage and Science. The presentation from this session is available on the Dearborn Teacher University tab under “PD Presentations.”
As a reminder, be sure to register for our next Dearborn Teacher University PD on February 13, 2018 from 4:10-5:25 p.m.. The topic will be SIOP Strategies. Please note the session will meet at the Stout MS Team Room NOT at the ASC Boardroom.
