    I stole this from another blogger but it pretty accurately reflects the feelings of everyone at my school. On the topic of the district’s required PD

    1) Were there new acronyms?
    2) Was there a PowerPoint?
    3) Was the PowerPoint difficult to read both on screen and in the handouts?
    4) Were teachers periodically asked to reflect on certain points and then share them with a partner at the table?
    5) Did the presenter assure us that she had been to an “all-day” training about this?
    6) Did teachers generally feel insulted and that their time was being wasted?

    Thanks for sharing the list. I have items to add to it, such as:

    a. Were there grammatical and/or typographical errors on screen and in the handouts?

    Hahahaha!! This is awesome, Maria. I feel for the duck who fell asleep…and Pandora’s late nights in her classroom. (And the little student birdies are so cute!)

    Of course. As well as multiple mistakes by the “IC”. We spoke at great length about Bloom’s Taxology…
