Last year I participated in a discussion group with classroom teachers
(K-6). It was a wonderful group, and we all shared a common philosophy and
teaching style. We all read a book about constructivist classrooms and then
would meet every two weeks over dinner to share. This was the 4th time I
was able to meet with a group of teachers in a setting other than a
traditional class (2 math oriented, one science and last year's). They have
been the best professional development I have had!
We are going to continue to meet this year - and I was just wondering if
anyone knew of available funding for professional development like this -
other than our schools. I would like to set up some art-based activities
for the group - they are all interested in the arts, they just need a little
more exposure - but money would be nice.
Any ideas?
