PD Opportunities from DESE 

I) Wellbeing Series for Educators:  Lighthouse Wellness and Health Education Consulting, in partnership with DESE, is offering two free, virtual, well-being series for educators:

  • The Yoga and Meditation series will consist of one hour of yoga practice (all levels welcome) followed by a 15-minute meditation practice. The series will run from Thursday, October 27 through Thursday, February 16, and participants can drop in for a single session or as many as they wish.
  •  The Thriving and Flourishing series will engage participants in a range of activities to prioritize their health and well-being, and all sessions will include some form of movement activity, breathing exercise, community connection, skill building, and personal focus/reflection time.

More information about both series, including links to register, is available online.

II) Civics Project Virtual Support Forum: 

The Department will hold a civics project virtual support forum titled, "Yeah, but What Does the Project Actually Look Like?!" at 3:30-4:30 p.m. on Monday, October 17. The forum will be co-facilitated by two Civics Project Fellows, educators experienced in planning and implementing student-led civics projects. Participants will learn from real classroom examples of what civics projects look like in action and will leave with concrete strategies for supporting students through Stage 5: Taking Action. Registration and more information are available online.
