History from the Middle Michelle Luck, and Brainy Apples will be co-presenting with me! The above FREE social studies professional development workshop sessions are here to help ensure you have a great upcoming school year. For nearly every teacher or staff member, the previous year and a half were filled with constant changes and stress. Due to this, lessons became jumbled in order to adapt to the way lessons were being provided, such as in-person, at home, or a combination.
The hope is that this upcoming year will begin to look like a school year used to look. In order to reshape lessons and help students adjust to school, the training sessions will be filled with helpful information! Afterward, you will feel much more confident on knowing how to keep your students engaged and excited for each class period!
