So Long, Farewell and Never Can Say Goodbye: Closing Out the School Year
The Lesley New Teacher
So Long, Farewell and Never Can Say Goodbye:
Closing Out the School Year
Saturday, May 31, 2014 from
University Hall, Porter
Teachers are often surprised at how emotional
the end of school can be and how hard it is to say good-bye to a class and
their families. Join us for a workshop that focuses on just this---how to
close out the school year in a healthy, organized and productive way for you
and your students.We will cover report
cards and progress reports, end-of-the-year activities and rituals, and saying
good-bye to a class or a group of students and families. etc. We’ve invited
four experienced and enthusiastic teachers to be part of our panel who
represent early and middle elementary schools and Middle/High Schools. There will be examples for you to look at and
you’ll be able to make these happen the very next week in your own classrooms.
Let’s try to make this into a show and tell,
too.Please feel free to bring anything
you’ve put into place or seen in another classroom so that we can all learn
from one another.
