Get Rid of the Excuse!
There are always excuses for standing in front of the room and droning on. I had to tell them something real quickly, I needed to give directions, I needed to make sure everybody was on the same page, this is something really difficult and so I had to get them all together and walk them through it slowly. Pretty soon, everything can fall into that category and you are a sage on the stage, boring the crap out of your students. And we wonder why they are disinterested in the material.
So What Does this Mean?
If you would like to see
- dynamic classrooms, then make your PD dynamic.
- interactive classrooms, then make your PD interactive.
- collaborative classrooms...
