March 2017 Regional Meetings
“But this I know…”
Sitting on the cusp of what could/might happen to/in public education is so very daunting/bewildering/frightening…
With so many uncertainties currently facing us, it’s difficult to define what might be the best use of our time together. As you are aware, this will be my final opportunity to be a part of helping to facilitate our conversations and sharing of information regarding curriculum issues. I, like you, am anxious for public education, our teachers, our students…
“SoWhat are the questions we must address?!!!!
Please plan to join us at one of the SMCAA Regional Meetings that will likely spawn some lively discussion of what must be done if we are to help lead what is quickly becoming a more discouraged and apprehensive academic staff…

Conducting You Own Curriculum Audit
The single most important step toward change is the first one. It is the one that begins the journey. Thus, using our internal GPS, it is essential that we first determine 'Where We Are'. This requires that we 'Face Our Own Reality' before we begin to chart a course for ‘where we will need to go’ and ‘what we are willing to do to get there,’ if we are to reach our goal of preparing every student with the 21st century skills they will need to be ready to succeed!
This 2-Day workshop will provide Curriculum Leaders with tools to help them determine if there is congruence among the written, taught and tested curriculum in their schools; including how to conduct a Readiness Audit to determine how prepared their district is to perform the work and adjust to changes in curriculum development and instructional strategies that will need to be done over the next couple of years.
