UPrep Teachers Plan for New Schedule

Today's Professional Development afternoon was dedicated to planning for University Prep's new schedule next year. The latest in a series of meetings was dedicated to reviewing some of the findings of teachers who have visited peer schools who have adopted a similar schedule with a reduced number of periods per day, and then breaking up into departmental groups to start detailed work for the next academic year. Tasks included identifying top learning objectives, discussing transition from content to thinking skills, mapping a course of 45 class meetings, and revising unit plans.
