Three Minute Classroom Walk Through Training

Carolyn Downey's book The Three Minute Classroom Walk-Through: changing School Supervisory Practice One Teacher at a Time provided a strong foundation to getting into classrooms more frequently, separate from the traditional classroom observation.

Our group recommends that you start with the end of the book, last two chapters, then return to the beginning. Philosophically, the original order of the book is all right, but practically speaking the end cleared some things up enabling us to practice what was being suggested with greater ease.

Promise Scholarship - Will the Class of 2009 lose out?

On Monday I was with some association directors and the conversation was centered on lack of state dollars. A higher education person shared the Promise Scholarship for the Class of 2009 could be shifting to a needs based program thereby reducing the amount of available scholarship dollars and, the program would likely come to an end after this year.

So, today (Thurs., June 11th) I scheduled a meeting with the Chair of the House Higher Education appropriations committee so to get the facts on the demise of the Promise Award and share this news with our members in an article that is due.
