I definitely agree with the following statement in this article,"PD sessions ideally should be spread across the entire school year, giving teachers time to absorb the material and integrate what they are learning into their classrooms in a more meaningful way". I feel it Professional Development is delivered in this manner, more teachers would appreciate how their PD time is being utilized. Being able to receive new information about a strategy or resources is always good; but being able to take it back to your classroom, work with it, collaborate with others, and then be able to go back and give or receive feedback would change how PD is viewed on a huge scale. Teachers need to feel the significance of information they are receiving, as well as, feel supported as they explore the new information. In my learning environment, I do believe all would agree, PD was delivered in this manner, teachers and students would reap the rewards in a positive and engaging way.
