Professional Growth Plan Development

The link below is a video prepared by Theresa Axford, Executive Director of Teaching and Learning, and Holly Hummel-Gorman, President of the United Teachers of Monroe. Holly and Terri collaborated on the video to help teachers and principals with understanding the development of Professional Growth Plans. They wanted to make sure that everyone in the district had the same information regarding the process for not only developing, but also implementing the plan to increase learning for both students and teachers. Also included are two supporting documents: the script and a step by step guide to create the PGP.

Everybody Writes!
District Teachers recently participated in a "train the trainer" session on the District's new writing initiative, "Everybody Writes."† The concept behind the program is to afford students opportunities to write in all subject areas prompted by questions that the teachers create to start and throughout the development of the lesson. Using this strategy, students are able to get thoughts together on the content being taught. Because the process requires students to put their thinking in writing, it prepares them for the new FSA Writing Assessment, which requires assimilation of materials to develop an essay based on the studentís interpretation of the materials. The strategy can be used across all content areas. Those being trained will share the information with teachers throughout the district.
