I'm just curious how other county's trainings work over the summer (and throughout the year). I think my school district is really good at them. They offer them in a variety of different content areas (math, reading, science, writing, social studies) and I almost always get a lot out of them--occationally there's a dud. Usually we get materials out of them AND our hourly rate of pay. I was just curious if that was standard or not. Our district is telling us how lucky we are and in other districts teachers have to pay for professional development. That seems crazy to me.
