On March 27, 2017, Julane Hill from NDE conducted a workshop for Physical Education teachers. This workshop examined the new K–12 Physical Education standards that were recently developed, and provided resources and ideas to integrate into elementary, middle and high school programs. Teachers were also able to collaborate and explore possible ways to integrate these standards into their classrooms.
During the week of June 13, 2016, the ESU #11 Staff Development Department provided an intensive training for teachers within the service unit area. This training focused on creating formative assessments to monitor student progress toward mastery of an objective. Teachers also had to plan, describe, and select appropriate strategies, resources, and evaluation tools. This course was taught by Staff Development Director Kate Hatch, Technology Curriculum Consultant Jody Bauer, and master teachers Julie Stagemeyer and Carmen Williamson from Arapahoe Public Schools.
On May 1, 2013, ESU 11 Staff Development Director Kate Hatch facilitated an alignment workshop for language arts teachers. During this workshop, middle/high school teachers worked collaboratively to create pacing guides to ensure that the Nebraska State Standards are taught when teachers are teaching novels.
