Melanie discussed my midpoint evaluation with me and we identified checkpoint items that I still need to complete. For the professional development component I am planning to offer a Media Center 101 session to any student teachers at Dorman this semester. Another idea is to offer training on using Destiny Quest.
Cathy and I met with Mrs. Shepard to finalize the plans for next week's curriculum unit. I am excited about the project and hope the students enjoy creating digital book reviews and visual book reports. I am also happy to have Cathy assisting with some of the more technical elements of the project! She has done visual book reports project before and has some great tips in this blog post. We will add in some information technology instruction related to citing images.
Melanie and Cathy attended EdTech this week and I look forward to hearing all about it. As I am posting after the big crosstown rival game, I must acknowledge that the Dorman Cavaliers beat my home school district team, the Spartanburg High School Vikings, 42-35. Hope I don't hear too much gloating on Tuesday!
