If you still need to join one of these groups or are making your own, please leave your name and book or group in the comments section of this post.
The PD Book Clubs for 2014-2015 are formed! Discussion Groups meet monthly on the third Wednesday at the location of your group's choosing. At this first September meeting next week, please decide your book group's norms and create a reading and assignment schedule. Please have one member of your group post it here in the comments so members can refer back to it.
So we have time for full staff discussions, please allow for time to create the presentation by April 1st. You can send me the link/links to it and I will post them here for the full staff if you are doing a flipped presentation. Take a look at this page get ideas of what your group might choose to do. Ideas included one pagers, videos, powerpoints and other slideshows, powtoons, etc. Other ideas are welcome.
