Teacher Professional Development

The teachers of Assumption Catholic School spent this past Friday afternoon learning new strategies for using cooperative learning in the classroom. New activities were introduced that require each group member to depend on one another for information and help build teamwork. Other activities allow one student to coach other students. Structure and teaching proper teamwork and social skills to students was stressed as the most important part of making cooperative learning work.  Dr. Garrett, a professor at Rider University and private consultant was excellent. Summer time is almost here BUT we are still learning and already planning for 2018-2019!
