Finding Time for Learning…For Educators and Students #vted

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to visit Underhill Central School to see a model that they call Integrated Arts time.  During this time three unified arts teachers provide learning opportunities for scholars over an extended block of time.  Designed around a specific theme students are able to rotate through stations or work together in a larger collaborative model of learning.  All the while this is happening, classroom teachers and educators are meeting as teams to explore data, learning goals and educational strategies.  Schools are constantly looking for ways to create time for educators to meet, learn and grow all without impacting student learning in a negative way.  These folks have found one of those ways that works within their structure and schedule.  It was amazing to visit and gave me an opportunity to think about things like Master Schedule and learning in a different way.
