I just wanted to take a minute and write about the resources and support that the new Instructional Services website can provide at this critical time of year. All of you are required to submit year and unit plans, along with your Eluminate reporting outcomes to your principals on September 19th. As such, I wanted to direct you to some things that might help you with this process.
At the bottom of the Instructional Services website, there are links to Long-Range, Unit, and Lesson Planning pages. They look like this:
Anyway, I hope that this can be the first of many supports and/or resources that I can provide as a benefit to teachers through the use of the Instructional Services website at NEA. If you do not have a link to the website, you can access it through the department page on www.scnea.com as follows:
Cheers and have a great start-up everyone :D
P.S. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns related to planning for the year. I would be happy to answer questions and/or come and work with you individually to ensure that you are happy with your planning and that it meets your needs, the needs of your principal, and most importantly the learning needs of your students!
