Meetings, meetings, meetings

So as we begin our preparations for a new year with new students, we get the pleasure of attending tons of meetings. Normally I don't mind professional development sessions, but endless sitting for endless hours just seems inappropriate, especially when we are talking about engagement and rigor. The rigor we had... it was SO rigorous to sit for that long. It took all my energy and focus to just stay awake. So that was a challenge. I propose that there MUST be a better way to instruct educators and to help them prepare for the new school year. Any ideas?

don't you love how professional development is conducted using everything we are taught NOT to do? i vote for our principal to let us do a team-building day at our local food 'n movie chain. sitting at a table being lectured for 3 days is not doing anything for my development as a teacher. (noreen)
