    • 10. One of the most important parts - Don’t forget “play time”
    • 11. Could this approach work in your school?Why or why not?
    • 12. Final Thoughts: This day worked because it wasdesigned by teachers for teachers.  I haveheard more positive feedback on this day thanany other PD I have ever been a part of.  I keepwondering why we didnt take our PD in thisdirection a lot earlier.  If we want classroomswhere we are teaching students to becollaborative and more proactive in theirlearning, dont we have to set up a culturewhere we trust teachers to do the same?
