|The weekend, here in the Maldives, basically begins Thursday evening. Friday and Saturday are the weekend. Friday is the day of prayer, and then Saturday is more of a free day.|
The Maldividan work week starts on Sunday...... so tomorrow, Sunday my work week begins too with two workshops scheduled. The first workshop will be at 10:30 a.m. for about 20 Meynaa School secondary teachers covering issues related to diagnostic, formative and summative assessment.
|My second workshop will begin at 8:45 p.m. for some 20 elementary teachers at Meynaa School. This will be more of a planning workshop, where teachers will discuss their professional development needs. |
The focus question for this workshop will be:
"What kind of training do you need most to advance as a teacher?"
Based on this needs assessment, I will then design and conduct a series of professional development workshops for these elementary teachers.
