"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." ~Confucius
Unlike many professional development opportunities that are conducted at school or district locations, this training can be completed in the comfort of your own home. This WebQuest is designed to be completed in three weeks; you are in control of how fast you complete each step.
1) First, complete each of the Process Steps by clicking on the links contained in each step. If there is a PowerPoint, be sure to allow a few moments for the PowerPoint to open, and then click on the Slide Show tab and press F5 on your computer. Then, click to advance the slide show.
2) As you read through each of the websites, reflect on the questions posed in the Process Step. Answer these questions in your Journal. Be prepared to discuss what you have discovered with your mentor at the end of the three weeks.
3) Use the knowledge you have gained to help you complete the "What Do My Students Need" checklist. Click on the link below for the blank chart and print it out. List all of your students' names in the first column, and then add information to the chart as you proceed through the WebQuest. You will also share the completed chart with your mentor.
4) Schedule a meeting with your mentor where you have some quiet, uninterrupted time to discuss what you have learned. You will assess your understanding using the rubric contained in the link below, and also on the Evaluation page.
