Have you guys heard of these? I just read about it and ended up attending one in our area. They are a kind of grassroots effort to make PD for teachers more meaningful. The teachers all show up and then chime in as to what they want to learn more about-no set agenda, no powerpoint presentations. It's more like discussion groups than a presenter and presentees, learning from each other. It was so exciting to be around teachers who were so positive and passionate. They are being held in cities all over the country.
