Josh Robertson - Teacher Spotlight

Happy birthday Michigan! January 26 marked the 180th anniversary of Michigan’s admission into the Union as the 26th state. Third grade social studies is all about studying Michigan and in Mr. Robertson’s third grade classroom, students study the geography of Michigan and its five themes in their first unit. In order to expose students to more about Michigan, students work in partnerships to research one of Michigan's state symbols (i.e. state stone, state tree, etc.). Once they have learned about and collected information on their state symbol, they then write a script for a Pure Michigan ad about their state symbol. Once they've written a script, they are then tasked with creating a 30 second Pure Michigan commercial using iMovie. More...

Technology Professional Development

Technology Professional Development

Technology & Media Services offers one-on-one and group support for teachers all throughout the school year as well as in the summer. Instructional technology activities qualify as professional development under section 1526 and section 1527 if the activity leads to new knowledge about using technology-enhanced methods and strategies to enhance student learning. This means you can schedule technology professional development before school, after school and on your prep and have it count toward your voluntary district provided PD hours (professional development that is being counted as instructional time as allowed by Michigan Compiled Law (MCL) Section 388.1701 Section 101(10), may only occur when students are not already receiving instruction). Request PD by (1) going to www.eastlansingPD.weebly.com, (2) going to www.elps.us > STAFF > Request Tech PD or (3) contact Technology & Media Services directly. More...
