Greenslate puts teachers to work
Christopher Greenslate, former ASNE fellow, presented a road map for teachers to implement the invaluable pedagogy and real world journalistic experience gained through participation in this institute.
Teachers were able to create vision statements, name obstacles, prioritize tasks and create a meaningful to-do list that will mould their future classes.
This seminar had a lightning-rod effect: I could clearly see how to begin implementing all the things we learn here, and build on those first steps to create an even better, stronger program down the line.
What Greenslate taught the teachers today will resonate with me for a long time; I plan on viewing any updates to curriculum in this way.
It breaks seemingly insurmountable obstacles and big picture issues into manageable pieces. It's just four bits: vision, priorities, obstacles, to-do. It is a great way to break your goals down and accomplish them step by step.
