Columbia University Program To Support Mount Markham Students
Teachers from each school building participated in training focused upon improving student reading and writing skills. The Columbia Reading and Writing Project shares a writing process and strategies aimed at improving students reading and writing skills.
Model Schools Professional Development
In August, faculty members had the opportunity to participate in the district's annual Summer Tech Camp. The tech camp took place over a three-day period and focused on ways to incorporate technology into the classroom. Teachers participated in workshops that would enable them to support communication, collaboration, literacy, and mathematic skills utilizing Google Apps for Education. iPad activities and school website trainings were also available. Participants were excited to learn about a few of these new tools and have already started creating lessons and activities to utilize within their classrooms.
