Welcome Stephanie Sommers and Heather Turngren!
I want to thank our colleagues Stephanie Sommers and Heather Turngren for sharing their expertise with us this week. During yesterday's webinar on "Applying a Growth Mindset in a Transition-Minded Lesson" these experts shared a number of excellent, practical strategies for supporting learners to meet their transition goals. They demonstrated a lesson-planning process that helps teachers to address various skills including professional skills, basic skills, digital skills and content-specific skills in a user-friendly way. They also shared many great resources with all of us.
These experts sure make a great tag team! Stephanie and Heather, we are looking forward to a meaningful discussion this week!
And a warm welcome to everyone! You are all invited to share your ideas and resources as well as your questions related to growth mindset and supporting learners' transitions.
Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
