Here it is...
The Content from my amazing 4 days last week. I could spend time talking about what I learned:
**Kagan Cooperative Learning versus Group Work
I'm sure I will have plenty to say after I "experiment" on my next class.
For now I want to read more. Talk it over with my Teammates and BTPSM (best teaching partner soul mate). And start my planning.
But I want to share a fantastic resource. Vickie @ Primary Press has several amazing blog posts about using Kagan Cooperative Learning in her kindergarten classroom. When I go to her blog I get swept away. Hopping from post to post. Be sure to find the posts with "Kagan" or "Cooperative Learning."
And maybe someday, when there is more money, my district will send me to a training in Florida. I would love to attend Kagan Structures for Little Ones, but I would also love to attend a a week-long institute.
It may be summer, but I am off to learn and make some lists!
