The One with the Complex Instruction Professional Development

We’re fortunate enough to have a strong mathematics Curriculum and Instruction department in our district. Once a year, we take a day to do some district learning and site-based learning.

Gotta shout out my school here (even though I don’t think they read this – am I subtweeting?) because we were short several subs and lots of (amazing) teachers filled in so that our departments could go and work together. Thank you thank you thank you.

We spent the first part of the day doing math and then thinking about how we could assign competence (recognize smartness) in each other. So many ways to talk about this and think about this. We also got a chance to talk about some best practices in our work at our school, which was cool.
