GOCSD is pleased to partner with Nixa's John Thomas School of Discovery (JTSD) to offer this Member Showcase professional learning event. Join us as we take a deep dive into how JTSD is utilizing backward design to plan integrated units. Working with a team of teachers, JTSD is developing instructional units incorporating the four major content areas. In this time together, we'll discuss how to analyze standards to find common themes, structure a unit together, and discuss different ways to plan lessons so that students are creating deep connections throughout their learning.

Save the date for these future GOCSD JTSD STEAM-U events.

  • 1/20/22: Data Conversations

  • 2/16/22: Writing for Transfer to Other Content Areas

  • 6/7/22: Project-Based Learning and Inquiry

Want to Host a Member Showcase Event?

One of the ways that GOCSD serves its members is by providing opportunities for them to share their expertise and practices. We know that seeing and hearing about the successful programs, initiatives and strategies in use in our GOCSD community is a powerful form of professional learning. 

Our Member Showcase events are a way for a building, district or university to invite other educators to visit their campus or to connect virtually, to see and learn about a successful practice or program currently being implemented. 

👉🏻 If you would like to host a Membership Showcase, please submit this Interest Form and we will be in contact with you. We need to start planning about 8 weeks prior to the event date.
