PD2Go - Professional Development to Go
We've found PD2Go is the favorite feature of literacy coaches at Choice Literacy, so we're including it here at Lead Literacy. Each video includes a workshop guide with a concise description of the video, related Common Core Standards, key topics, and sample discussion questions. Below the player, select the "Workshop Guide" which details how to use the video in a professional development setting, with related readings and video viewing templates provided to enhance the learning experience. A transcript is provided when appropriate -- just click on the "Transcript" icon.
PD2Go is our master class in professional development for literacy leaders -- just reading through the workshop guides will give you lots of ideas for structuring discussions, focusing events, and guiding colleagues to better practice.
