February 14 professional development focused on Canvas. In the fall, Colonial's secondary students will find all of their courses and assignments in one place.
The Curriculum Department features a team of content supervisors who have the “big picture” view and can make sure that concepts are covered in a relevant way and that the curriculum builds effectively from year-to-year – offering our students all the academic skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in the future.
Visible Learning looks at hundreds of factors on student success and determines each factor's effectiveness by pulling in data from research that involves more than 80,000 studies and 300 million students.
The visitors explored Makerspaces at each building level and saw how computer programming, engineering and science help Colonial students become future ready.
The full day of professional development introduced teachers to new curriculum, teaching strategies, classroom management skills and more.
Thirty girls from fifth to eighth grade designed, built and programmed robots and drones.
Colonial has more than 120 students who are learning English as a second language, and classroom teachers learned tools and strategies to support them.
Congratulations to Susan Burns, Amy Campbell, Brooke Carpenter, Rich Madel, Tom Ortlieb, Erin Powers, Jennifer Ramsden and Josh Rothstein!
