Five Updates From the 5DP
#1 Equity for All- 5DP Shared Professional Development Day Updates
We are getting so excited for Equity for all the 5DP Shared Pd day on November 5th. Click here to see the schedule for the day. We have over 2000 educators signed up to attend and over 100 presenters working on fantastic sessions for the day. All participants will receive a formal confirmation in their email after October 28th. This email will also contain parking information and other logistics. We will be batching them to avoid problems with the spam filters, but please check your spam for the confirmation as well. If you do not receive one- don’t worry. We will have copies of your schedule at each location. If you do not know your location you can reach out to Cove Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org after the 28th.
#2 Choose Your Lunch- 5DP Shared PD Day
The districts are providing bag lunches on the 5DP Shared PD day. Please take this quick survey to choose a lunch option. This is to help us plan to have enough in each category. https://forms.gle/po3V3HPspieLCRti9
#3 Mini Ed Camp @ 5DP Shared PD day
The schedule for the shared PD day leaves time directly after the lunch block (12:30-1:00) for some informal time for teachers to meet and shared ideas. We are calling this a mini-ed camp. We will have signup boards at each check in to allow teachers to sign up for a short session. These can be as informal as you wish. Ideas that I have heard for this include: affinity group time ie art teachers, EL teacher, social workers, help for outside of school issues like getting a masters, or topics like using music in the classroom. Please come ready with some ideas! No need to plan materials- these should be informal.
#4 Opportunities for Teachers
The Teacher Collaborative still has a few spots left in two of their yearlong Co-Labs for Innovation (both of which include stipends!). Check out Suburban Educators for Equity and Learning Can Be Rocket Science to experience PD like you’ve never experienced it before!
