Class snap of the week

The teaching staff at Wilton Jr/Sr High School is once again working with each other to watch great teaching, discuss great teaching, and then have a fun class snap taken of their visit.  Teachers are working with each other to look at various teaching strategies (we have identified 19 we think are 'must use' strategies) while they visit classrooms.  Breaking down the walls and visiting classrooms is the only way to really spread how to do great teaching - basically, teachers teaching teachers.  Plus, I like how teachers get to see how other classrooms are set up, what it is like to be in a classroom again vs teaching a room, and to see how great their colleagues are in their own environment.  I love hearing the comment, "I didn't know much about their class but they do a really great job!"  That is why we are doing our professional development the way we are - for comments like that!

So enjoy our fun side!  See the pictures below of teachers going into classrooms to see a strategy and then taking a class snap!
