Douglas Reeves @douglasreeves mentioned that when we approach professional learning we should focus on “action outcomes.” As you finish chapters in the next book you read, jot down action outcomes that you might like to accomplish with your students, teachers, or families. What a simple and positive thing to do!
In a continuous effort to be sure, our #BookCampPD chat meets the needs of our marvelous, dedicated #PLN members a survey was completed on October 27th. They requested we return to having only one book as our focus during a month. The following rotation was proposed and they agreed to it.
The first week in the month – Book Tasting – Talk about professional learning books.
The second week of the month – Porch Swing – Share strategies and resources from the focused book with others in the chat.
The third week in the month – Shine the Spotlight – Brag about what you’re implementing from the concepts shared in the book.
The fourth week in the month – Guest Author(s) – Author(s) of the book join our chat.
