I am so proud of all of the Project Cam Opener participants!
I have been sharing some of the videos over the last month with folks in the Chief Academic and Innovation Office as well as the Chief Schools Office, and the response has been amazing!
Everyone, from Instructional Superintendents to Executive Directors of the ELA department and Interdisciplinary Learning have been so impressed by your commitment to reflecting upon your practice and providing resources to your students and fellow teachers. I just wanted to take a moment and thank each of you for your contributions, no matter how small or large thus far.
I will have more opportunities to share videos, but I wanted to call out the ones that have been helping me to fully understand the impact of this project thus far. Here are the ones that went around thus far:
First, Valerie Svoboda from Grant Beacon Middle School shares a wonderful snapshot of teaching the writing process within their “Ideation Lab”: https://plus.google.com/+ValerieSvoboda/posts/U3TaFZUJP8Y
