Professional Development on Demand. PD Bites: A Buffet of Learning Anytime/Anywhere. This is a new delivery model, based on current research that ongoing job-embedded professional development has more lasting effect in the classroom. This model will involve a menu of several 30-minute modules that teachers can complete anytime, anywhere. Teachers can randomly select modules or choose to follow a learning path on a single topic. Teachers wishing to earn credit will complete 7 hours (14 modules) for .5 credit or 14 hours (28 modules) for one credit along with guided job-embedded assignments to meet the state requirement for credit. Modules can be completed by individuals, by PLCs working together toward a common goal, or under the direction of the administration in faculty meetings.Topics include: Planning for ELs (WIDA, SIOP), Culturally Responsible Teaching, Differentiation, Academic Conversations. Other topics will be addressed as the need arises.
