Teacher Learning Days
On Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 23-24, NIS teachers spent time working and learning. In the secondary, teachers were planning for the upcoming MYP authorization visit this May, focusing on standardization of grading and unit planning across grades 6-10 and planning for the NIS Extended Learning trips in May. The Primary school teachers were investigating teaching through inquiry - examining what Inquiry is and how to teach for Conceptual Understanding. They also studied the role of provocations and questioning, and the role of assessment in Inquiry. It was an important chance to get together and collaborate and learn!
