September 21, 2017: SITP  Three areas of focus for 2017-18
We talked about our focus areas at orientation, and last year as well, so we are going to use these to shape our explorations in these SITPEC sessions.

Possible Topics for SITPEC Exploration


September 29, 2016: Making meaning of content.
Our first SITPEC meeting of 2016-17 was held on Thursday, September 29, 2016 at the History Center.  

We launched our focus for the year inviting Veronika Lopez-Mendez (principal of Rosa Parks) to speak with our Museum Educators about the role she sees her teachers playing at SITP. In addition, she talked about the difference our students have learning to make meaning of content and how we can support EL’s to build Academic Language.
