The Progress Report
The Progress Report continues with two new posts! This first post is a timely discussion on new ways to set up your classroom as the school year begins. The second post details how the difference between professional development and professional learning is more than just semantics.
Also, congratulations to Patricia Karner, Anne Pasco, Tonya Forbes, Marsha Sommers, Stepanie Whitecotton, Tim Loversky, Joe Neukirch, Carla Johnson, Katharine Hertz, and Shonette Sims who were the first 10 to respond to the first week’s blog post and won a $25 giftcard to Amazon!
