September 2020 Regional Meetings


This year we will offer two live virtual opportunities for our September Regional Meetings.  We are happy to provide these regional meetings free to all member district staff. In addition to our morning meeting, we will provide a DESE Update along with an afternoon session to support training for those teaching Science at the K-8 levels.  You may register for each event as a district or individually. 

Evaluating Instruction in an Alternative Setting: Focus on These “Look-Fors”

AM Session -  8:30-11:00 a.m.

Instruction in an alternative setting not only looks and feels different, the emphasis of teacher evaluation in these venues will focus on specific viable skills. We will introduce some researched ideas for what to look for when evaluating teachers, some thoughts on feedback and reasonable expectations of practice.

PM Session: 12:30-2:30 p.m.

Now that our Foundational Science Curriculum (developed in conjunction with DESE and teachers across the state) is up and available to our members, we will be providing useful training on how to use this resource to its fullest capacity.  Join us for a focused session on unit development and how best to plan in a variety of teaching venues.
