Big Idea #1 - Hey Principals! Need something to enrich your PIR days for the rest of the year?

The Hub’s group courses may be just what you need! Group courses blend the convenience of online learning with the power of collaboration.  One person signs up for the course, prints the handouts, gathers the participants in a room, pulls up the course on a projector and you are ready to go!  Most courses are 3 hours but can be split into 1 hour sessions.  Current group courses include: 8 Mathematical Practices, Growth Mindset, Integration Across Content Areas, School Wide Reading and Writing Protocol, and Key Words Can Be Misleading.  View our catalog for the full listing.

Big Idea #2 - Looking for Designers
