Dates: Spring 2009 – opportunity for input

This message applies to most of Cohort 7: Ed.S. students, Interns, M.Ed. students.  It’s a “trial balloon” to test out dates for next semester.

I am anxious to firm up the meeting calendar for next term, as I’m sure most of you are, too.  As the “senior” group, I ask you first to express preferences on dates.

EDIT 7650 (Ed.S.) will meet about 5 times, at 2-3 hours each.  EDIT 7460 (all active interns, whether registered or not) will meet  approximately 4 times, at two hours each.  In these internship meetings, we will likely discuss capstone activities like portfolios, and other events related to graduation, certification, finishing up, and hunting for jobs.  Thus, Ed.S. students will need to set aside most of the day, while M.Ed.s will need to obligate about 2 hours.  I don’t want to talk about exactly which hours just yet, but falling between 9a-3p unless you have other bright ideas.

Jan 24, Feb 7, Feb 21 (Ed.S. only), Mar 14, Apr 18

This schedule avoids the Children’s Lit conference Saturday (Mar 7), MLK weekend, and  Bunny Day (Apr 11).  With the exception of Mar 28, all other dates belong to Cohort 8.

I’ll take comments here or via email through early next week.  Speak up – if I don’t hear from you, I’ll assume you are ok with these dates.
