Spring Digital Breakout
This month's PD is an escape room! Have you participated in one before? If not, that's OK. Just remember it's all about the 4 Cs: communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. Follow the prompts, and then think critically about how you can crack the code to move onto the next challenge. (This form has been created with response validation, so unless you get the exact combination/code, you cannot complete the challenge.)

You will need to begin your adventure by reading the following strategies in The ELL Teacher's Toolbox: 10 Reading Comprehension (pp. 103-122), 12 Concept Attainment + (pp. 137-144), 15 Quoting/Summarizing/Paraphrasing (pp. 165-174), 19 Error Correction (pp. 201-205), and 31 Listening (pp. 311-319).
How does our digital breakout room work? WATCH HERE to learn how.
Here's a picture of the resort you're trying to get to.
2. Before you leave, you have just a few papers to grade. While you're grading, listen to this podcast about design thinking with The Tech Rabbi. In this episode (episode 30), the hosts, Ben & Becky, discuss the work of John Hattie and mention A PRACTICE that can have a HUGE effect on student achievement. Using the cipher below, figure out the numerical combination for this lock.
