April 2015 SIRDC Newsletter
NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY FOR TEACHERS
Attention Teachers Planning on Attending the 2015 FCSTAT Professional Conference:
Does it sadden you to pack up or discard outstanding student work and projects that are left behind as the school year comes to an end? Did your students participate in any unique service learning projects that you’d love to tell your colleagues about? Would you like one more opportunity to SHOW OFF a student CTSO project?
The SIRDC team is once again providing you with an opportunity to share best practices and network with your FCSTAT colleagues! We will be sponsoring our second SIRDC Lesson Showcase and Best Practices Session at the 2015 FCSTAT Professional Conference. If you are interested in showcasing one or more SIRDC lessons, teaching strategies or student projects, please contact Sandra Delgado at email@example.com. We have space for approximately 25 lesson/strategy presenters. We are in need of at least one presenter for each Education and Training, Hospitality and Tourism, and Human Services Career Cluster® course. Requests to participate in this session will be accepted until May 30, 2015. Selected individuals will be contacted by June 5, 2015 with more details.
The following resources have been developed or located for your use by the Statewide Instructional Resources Development Center team. Click on the lesson titles below for instant access!
