Well, we find ourselves coming to the end of our COETAIL journey with one final course. That being said this is where the rubber meets the road. Where we take everything that you have learned and apply it to a unit in your classroom and truly change learning at a very deep level. We’ll talk more about this on Saturday, September 27th in our meeting.
Course 5 Access
I have given everyone access to the Course 5 materials (Under My Courses in the menu) so you can see what is expected of you in this final course and have questions ready for me in our meeting. You can even start working on your final project now (strongly encouraged!).
This year we have started using Flipboard as a way for the instructors to share what they are reading and to highlight some of the great blog posts, ideas, and reflections happening around the COETAIL community. Here is a video I made (caution…it’s 22 minutes long) to help you start to wrap your head around Flipboard and why I am so excited to start using this year with COETAILers.
The two magazines that I strongly encourage you to follow are:
COETAIL Ponderings: These are articles that the instructors and coaches find that are interesting but maybe don’t really fit into a COETAIL course.
Around the COETAIL Community: These are some of the great blog posts that have the instructors and coaches thinking from around the community. Allowing us to highlight the great reflections that you all do and help you spread your own thoughts across the community.
Our Day Together
Our day together on September 27th is going to be pretty loose. We’ll watch and discuss some course 5 final project videos and practice assessing them together as a group. We’ll talk about your COETAIL journey and hopefully in the second part of the day give you time to really start putting things in place for your own Course 5 projects while I meet with each one of you personally to make sure you’re on the right track.
If you have any questions before September 27th feel free to leave a comment below and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible.
Looking forward to meeting you all and learning with you in this final course of your COETAIL journey.
