Hello and Happy Friday Learning Forward North Texas Family!

We hope this email finds healthy and safe and off to a great second semester! As we move into the second semester we are needing to pivot possibly next week. Can you please fill out the quick survey, as we might need to make some changes. Once we have a consensus I will post again on Monday, so everyone can prepare. You can find the survey here.

Also, you can find the link to the LFNTX Genial that has tons of info on it.

Have a great Friday and we hope to see you virtually soon!

LFNTX 5.15.20 Hosted by RISD

We look forward to connecting with you Friday, May 15th from 11:00 – 12:30. During this time we will discuss the following.

  • Summer Conferences & Summer Professional Learning
  • New Teacher Support for the 20-21 School Year
  • Paraprofessional/Support Staff for summer & the 20-21 school year

Some things to consider before we chat:

  • What virtual platforms will you use to connect for Summer professional learning?
  • What tips have you learned about designing or coordinating virtual professional learning so far? 
  • What are some creative ways to include inclusion activities in LIVE sessions?
  • For LIVE sessions that are longer, how are you incorporating movement to break up the learning?  

We will use the breakout feature on Zoom during our time and will create a Google document to capture your groups notes on, so we can have access to the notes after we meet.

Join us if you can☺ The details for the Zoom are below.
