Day 1 at the Constructivist Conference

July 21, 2009

Day 1 at the Constructivist Conference. My team from Huevelton Central School is working on creating a plan to develop a Professional Development Plan. They looked at the NYS Standards for Professional Development (yes such a thing exists) and did a quick analysis of how their school stacked up against the standards. They created a graphic organizer of their task and created a work contract between me, their facilitator, and themselves.
I was pleased that they saw the importance of creating a school culture that values professional development. We’re going to get an expert in on Wednesday to discuss that concept.
We didn’t get all the tasks for the day done but I think we’re off to a good start. Tomorrow we create a rubric to measure what success will look like at the end of the week. They have a big task but I think they will be happy with their results.
